Bavaria on a visit to South Africa

On the 28 February 2013 the President of the Bavarian State Parliament, Mrs Barbara Stamm, and Vice-Presidents, Mr Reinhold Bocklet, Mr Franz Maget, Mr Peter Meyer and Mr. Jörg Rohde and other members of the Presidium of the Bavarian State Parliament visited HOPE Cape Town. The visit program included a presentation about the work of HOPE Cape Town in the Township of Blikkiesdorp by Rev. Fr. Stefan Hippler and a visit of the Ithemba ward at Tygerberg children hospital. During the walk through Blikkiesdorp the German guests got to know the work which is done by HOPE Cape Town and gained insights into the tough life that people are facing day by day in the township. This was followed by lunch at the Tygerberg Hospital during which the interested delegation members asked further questions and entered into dialogue with Father Hippler and the other employees of HOPE Cape Town about the many different tasks of the organization.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the delegation for the generous donation which they gave to Father Hippler.
