Cardinal Visits Mildmay

On 15th June, Cardinal Vincent paid a visit to Mildmay, the HIV charity and specialist hospital in East London. Following a short chapel service, he met with staff and patients, and  toured one of the hospital wards, and heard about some of Mildmay’s specialised work treating and rehabilitating people with complex and severe health conditions caused by HIV, including HIV associated brain impairment. He remarked, ‘I’ve come to a place that is full of joy, characterised by the generosity and care of so many people. This is a setting in which much careful help is given, medically and personally. Mildmay is a house of joy, of hope, of healing.’
