The family structure in Africa are slowly changing. Younger generations are moving to towns in order to find work. The older generation remains at home. As well the care for chronically ill patients becomes a too heavy burden for some families. With a hospice and a palliative care station we could allow patients with an uncurable disease a end of life care in dignity and with minimal pain. In our palliative care program, we look after those patients who suffer from an incurable disease or are nearing the end of their lives. We offer them comprehensive health care, counseling and material support.
