Brotherhood of Blessed Gérard

If you are prepared to make a donation ...

The entire work of the Brotherhood of Blessed Gérard has to be financed from donations because the patients are so poor that they cannot contribute to expenses.
We depend on your help and are very grateful for every donation, whether large or small.

Help us help!
