God, AIDS, Africa & HOPE

pensées of a Catholic priest

03.08.2010 Monday blues again…

Early morning drive to Tygerberg Campus to meet with the senior staff of HOPE Cape Town. From the report back from the Vienna conference till practical questions – time is flying when discussing a multitude on practical issues. Afterwards meeting together with Dr. Esser the new CEO of Tygerberg Academic Health Complex, Dr. Erasmus, for a brief into on HOPE Cape Town and discussing common grounds and joint goals.
Back to town to attend the luncheon of the Southern African – German Chamber of Commerce and Industry and interesting to learn amongst others that Germany invests more in the Western Cape than in the Gauteng area. I have to thank the speaker for an excellent presentation and overview about the investment climate after the  soccer world cup 2010.
A 5 minute contribution to the screening of the movie “Themba” in Trier, organised by the Trierer Aidshilfe and Broadway is filmed and send for pressing on CD to send off to Germany.
A brief visit at the office to answer emails before again out to a dinner with a colleague to discuss current matters of church and society.
The day ends with another check of the email box, containing the request to write a column for a German newspaper about the movie “Ithemba” and to translate some text for the World AIDS awareness campaign II.
But this has to wait until Wednesday, tomorrow I have to visit our employees in Grabouw and Hermanus before attending the AGM of the “choice of life” project in Lansdowne.

HIV, AIDS and HOPE – thoughts of a Catholic priest

Being a Roman - Catholic priest and working in the fields of HIV and AIDS in Africa is often a challenge. Living in Africa has also its challenges. On the other hand I feel very much blessed having all the three. So you will find stories and reflections about my work, about the church, South Africa and Africa and essential information and developments in the field of HIV and AIDS. And in between personal stories and thoughts. You are most welcome to leave a comment or to get in touch with me - blogs - "thinking loud" so to speak is a ways of communication and exchange of ideas.
