MSC HIV/AIDS Response Office
We MSC (Missionarii Sacratisimi Cordis Jesu) see the heart of Christ as a symbol of God’s Love. Faith in the power of love motivates us to serve humankind everywhere. We strive to be attentive to human needs and aspirations, respecting the desires of a person for love, freedom and justice. We reach out to those who suffer, seek to identify the causes and discern a response in the light of the gospel.
In order to become more concretely involved in the prevention of HIV and Aids and in the support of those infected and affected, we formed the MSC HIV/Aids Response in 2002.
We support initiatives in our local communities that respond to the needs for spiritual reflection, education and empowerment, and care for the sick and the orphans. We promote in a special way a holistic approach on the meaning of human sexuality.
Inspired by the Congolese experience ‘MSC HIV-Aids Response’ develops and promotes ‘In the Image of God, fully human’, programs for children and youth.
These programmes can be integrated with existing catechesis and youth structures. Enabling adults to educate their communities in a Christian understanding of sexuality is essential to our vision. We are confident that as we realise this dream the HIV infection rate will come down.
We believe that the scourge of Aids challenges the whole community to return to the spirit of Ubuntu and revitalise the values of human living, in sharing communities, where each individual is respected.
