is an Association of the Roman Catholic Church (FBO),
the Relief Organisation of the Order of Malta in South Africa,
a (South African) Public Benefit Organisation (PBO 18/11/13/2769)
operated not for profit (NPO).
The Brotherhood of Blessed Gérard was founded in 1992 at Mandeni
in the Province of kwaZulu/Natal in South Africa.
We established and provide a comprehensive and holistic system of care
through Blessed Gérard's Care Centre by running:
Health Care Projects:
AIDS-Care, Hospice, Poor Sick Fund
Child Care Projects:
Pre-Primary School, Children's Home, Malnutrition Clinic, Bursary Fund
Relief and Social Care Projects:
Relief Fund, First Aid & Emergency Service, Disaster Relief
- The main aim of the Brotherhood of Blessed Gérard is
to enable and empower people to help themselves,
so that they will finally become independent of charity
and possibly even become helpers themselves.
- A secondary aim is to provide direct aid
in cases of emergency and immediate need.
