100 million people. One hospice. Hospice Ethiopia

Ethiopia has an estimated population of 100 million. But only one hospice. Many thousands of people there have incurable diseases. They are dying. They are dying in distress, often in pain, with nowhere to turn. Their only hope is Hospice Ethiopia.

Hospice Ethiopia provides free drugs, so that the dying have relief from pain. It provides medical attention to alleviate the worst symptoms. It gives support, so that patients can care for themselves and, in many cases, their children. The care it gives is home-based: Hospice Ethiopia no longer has the funds for ward patients.

But what’s really, really important is that Hospice Ethiopia is training doctors, nurses and other medics about palliative care – care for the dying – so that they can bring relief to the thousands more who need it, across Ethiopia.

Help us to help them.
