KZN Aids hospice funds tsunami relief

An International charity, the Order of Malta, whose South African Relief Organisation runs an Aids hospice in northern KwaZulu-Natal has made an unselfish donation to countries affected by the tsunami.

The Brotherhood of Blessed Gerard, a national relief and charity organisation, which funds the Blessed Gerard Hospice in Mandini, has sent almost R15 000 of medical supplies to India and Thailand to help the victims of the tsunami.

"The medication was donated to the Blessed Gerard Hospice and had to be imported from Germany," said the hospice's Father Gerard.

The medication was transported to India and Thailand on December 31, 2004.

Apart from the medication sent by the Brotherhood of Blessed Gerard, the Order of Malta has sent a team of international relief workers to India, Sri Lanka and Thailand.

The Blessed Gerard Hospice in Mandini cares for 80 patients living with Aids.
