All Africa Conference: Sister to Sister

SOUTHERN AFRICA CONFERENCE

April 20-25, 2004

STATEMENT

We, 85 Catholic women religious from seven countries of southern Africa (Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia, Zimbabwe), representing 50 women’s religious congregations, gathered April 20-25, 2004, in Bronkhorstspruit, South Africa.  Along with the whole church and the people of southern Africa, we are faced by the devastating situation of HIV and AIDS.  We therefore came together to address the claims made on us by the AIDS pandemic as it impacts our people and ourselves.  We now call ourselves to intensify our response with faith and action.
