A Life Given for Africa

By Brother Michael Delmer SDB

This is the story of a young man of generosity, courage and compassion. He spent his short life working for the poor children of Africa. Service to others is embodied in his now well-known motto, "While my heart beats, I have to do what I think I can do, and that is to help those who are less fortunate". Although his convictions cost him his life, his spirit lives on in the young people he worked for in Africa, and in all those who have been inspired by his life.
