God, AIDS, Africa & HOPE

Reflections / Gedanken

Starting packing…

Normally I start packing earliest a day before I leave the country – but this time is different. The World AIDS Awareness Expedition is only starting mid April but already today I started to collect my stuff and to try to pack it nicely. Space is an issue and this morning I tried out to pack parts of the new cloths I organised for the tour to vacuum pack – interesting, funny, but working. It reduces the space quite a bit.. good so.. Last week I went for all the necessary vaccinations – from hepatitis to yellow fever and cholera – I have it all now and lets hope that it works for me and protect my body from becoming sick. I also decided not to take Malaria prophylaxis – it does not make sense to take it for weeks. But I got a test kit to test immediately if I feel I might be bitten by a mosquito and some emergency medication to keep it at bay. The clock is ticking.. in 3 months we are already 4 days on the run…
Move the world – by watching the blog, which will be hopefully updated during my journey every day – so you can follow and be part of this expedition. And maybe the fundraising effort. We are looking for 5 000 000 people donating each 1 Euro – the money is not for supporting the expedition but projects on the 5 continents dealing with HIV/AIDS like HOPE Cape Town. So if you want to be support, information how to do it is coming soon on this blog.

Be part of a great worldwide experience – and help to move the world…

HIV, Development and HOPE – thoughts of a Catholic priest

Being a Roman - Catholic priest and working in the fields of HIV and social development in Africa has its challenges. You will find stories and reflections about my work, about the church, South Africa and Africa, about politics and whatever triggers my interest. You are most welcome to leave a comment or to get in touch with me. Blogging means to initiate thoughts and discussions and for the writer to formulate what is loosely running around in the heart and mind in need of being sorted and spoken out.
