World Day of the Sick

11 February

We don't just commemorate and make resolutions, what we think others are supposed to do, but we make a difference ourselves:

We care for our Lords, the Sick!

We look after and give a home to sick, neglected, abused, malnourished, abandoned and orphaned children.

Blessed Gérard’s Hospice

We give medical assistance and care as a relief organisation in case of a disaster.

Blessed Gérard’s Malnutrition Clinic

We run a clinic, where we examine, treat and feed malnourished infants and teach their parent or carer in proper baby care.

We give bursaries to poor pupils and students from our local community.

Blessed Gérard’s Pre-Primary School and Crèche

We run a Pre-Primary-School and Crèche for underprivileged children.
