God, AIDS, Africa & HOPE

pensées of a Catholic priest

Donations from USA!?

The world is becoming a village – and HOPE Cape Town has been also approached by other persons in other countries who are willing to support the fight against HIV and AIDS in South Africa.
One problem we are facing is that we don’t have the appropriate USA tax number and so being enabled to issue tax -deductible receipt. If somebody reading this knows of any NGO or PBO in the USA, who would be interested in cooperate in different fields, but also channel funds in a legal and tax-deductible way from USA to South Africa, please let me know.
The prospective partner NGO or church or entity should be well established and interested in the work in Africa.

31.10.2009 The Gala

It is 4h23 in the morning and I am just back from the HOPE Gala Dresden.  It was a good evening with lots of show programme, excitement and good deeds and it seems that all in all everybody is happy. While some are still dancing the night away for me it is time to go to bed as in a couple of hours, the next meeting will take place. Sunday is not always a day to rest for me… We had the vice ambassador of South Africa and her husband, the minister of interior of Germany and his wife, the former premier and many actors and well-known people – photographers where en mass there – the first time I have seen it like that. Security was very tied because of the minister, who belongs to the group of specially endangered persons in our republic.

Viola and her team gave her best and succeeded, it was good to have Joachim Franz and his team with us as well as Ulrich Heide from the German Aids Foundation – a good day which shows that cooperation between all of them and myself is strong and growing. Cooperation is important and I am sure that the last days cemented a network which will be heard of in the years to come.

But first some hours of sleep. Good night.

22.10.2009 Two days workshop

A two days intensive planing workshop between Joachim Franz, be your own hero eV., Sabine Jahn from the German Aids Foundation and myself is drawing to an end. Two days of consideration, deliberation and looking forward into cooperation and projects for the years until 2013. It is amazing to see how far one must have to plan – big events need proper preparation time and all are committed to continue their fight against HIV and AIDS in a positive way by bringing awareness, supporting those infected or affected in Germany, South Africa but also worldwide. Watch this space in the next years to come.

For me it is great to see how cooperation can not only reduce costs but also shape focus and create synergies which can indeed move the world, be it the little world around us or the bigger world in the real sense of the word. I will now travel to Berlin to meet up with another possible cooperation and networking partner, the Charite Museum in Berlin.
