An everlasting brotherhood
Blessed Gérard, the founder of the Order of Malta, said: "Our brotherhood will be everlasting, because the ground which this plant is rooted in, is the misery of the world - and because, God willing, there will always be people, who want to work towards the alleviation of these sufferings to make this misery more bearable."

Responding to the AIDS problem
Interview with Father Gérard on 27 July 2009 and broadcast on 07/08/2009 at 17.23.57.
Responding to the AIDS problem in kwaZulu-Natal, the Blessed Gerard's Care Centre.
Today we are going to visit a centre which has developed in response to the problem of AIDS in rural South Africa.
The centre is found in KwaZulu-Natal, just over 100 kms north of Durban, in the town of Mandeni, in an area which is said to have the highest rate of AIDS anywhere.
Mandeni lies on the trucking route between Durban and Mozambique, a fact that contributed to this high rate of infection.
The Blessed Gérard's Centre is named after the founder of the Knights of Malta who have contributed greatly to the construction of the centre through the foundation, Brotherhood of Blessed Gerard, first set up in 1992.
The building was opened in 1996 and since then has grown in response to the needs of the people.
Fr. Gerard Lagleder is a Benedictine missionary and it was he together with a local doctor, who saw that something had to be done to help relieve the suffering of the people in Mandeni.
Fr Gerard shared with us about what led him to see the need for the Blessed Gerard Centre.
That was the first part of an interview with Benedictine missionary, Fr. Gérard Lagleder, telling us about the work of the Blessed Gerard Care centre in Mandeni.

Misinformation about HIV AIDS is considered in the second part of our interview about the Blessed Gérard's Care Centre in Mandeni, South Africa.
In this second part of our interview with Fr. Gérard Lagleder, we consider what could be done to confront the problem of misinformation about AIDS.

At the forefront of Anti-retroviral Therapy
At the forefront of Anti-retroviral Therapy in South Africa, the Blessed Gérard's Care Centre.
HAART is the name of one of the main projects of South Africa’s Blessed Gérard's Care Centre.
First let's reflect on our interview with Fr. Gérard Lagleder last week on this feature, when he shared about the need to inform people about how HIV AIDS can be transmitted so as to combat misinformation, which as we heard, can lead to the tragic abuse of children.
