This years’ Aids day commemoration at Hope House took place on November 30 as many other events would be held at local, regional and national level on December 1.
Somehow, Fr Larry McDonnel SDB (82) was the person most mentioned during the event and rightly so. He is the “founding father” of Hope House. “Only God knows how many lives you have saved with this initiative” someone pointed out.
After the opening prayer by Mrs Sithole he was asked to light the candle remembering those affected and infected by HIV/Aids and say a few words.
“This is our life. This is Christ, our life” he said.
