Consul General Eugene Young meets Head of the Divine Life Society of South Africa
April 23, 2007
Durban Consul General Eugene Young met with the spiritual Head of the Divine Life Society (DLS) of South Africa, Swami Sahajananda, at their International Cultural Center in La Mercy on Sunday, April 8.
About one thousand members of this faith-based Hindu organization and its senior officials heard Consul General Young’s remarks about the Consulate's links with the DLS during the past 30 years and the U.S. commitment to working with South Africa to address the HIV/Aids pandemic in South Africa.
The Divine Life Society is seeking opportunities to collaborate with the U.S. Government to bring much needed assistance to the thousands of families infected and affected by the Aids scourge, particularly in the KwaZulu-Natal province.
