Hundreds of sick people need your love . . .
to get better. Please will you help?

Randall faces an uncertain
future at the hospice . . .
There’s no table for staff to write their reports on, so they use a bed as a desk!

If you’re one of our many friends that responded to our plea for help for the Hawston Hospice last year – thank you.

Sadly, things at the hospice haven’t turned around since my last letter – and that’s why if you’re a friend . . . we need your online help here.

You see, the single oxygen tank has stopped working, the only UV sterilising unit needs urgent repairs . . . the wall-heating panels have ‘packed up’ and all the patients have to huddle around one oil heater.

And as if that’s not enough there are no drip stands – only pieces of wire hanging over screen rails, attached to the drips. The beds also urgently need proper railings to make sure weaker patients don’t roll onto the floor.

Please will you make your online donation here?

The hospice provides a crucial service to almost 900 patients in-house and within the community, and you can imagine the pressure on the equipment and staff.

Without your support and generosity, the hospice can’t operate properly . . . and the patients will face greater suffering.

Please can I count on you to make your donation here so patients can receive the essential medical care they so urgently need?

As you know medical equipment isn’t cheap. But when you consider the difference it’ll make to the staff – and the patients whose lives they fight to save – its value exceeds the price tag.

Besides the faulty equipment, there’s also an urgent need for air mattresses and sheep skin covers for stroke patients who can’t move and are at risk of bedsores.

Please make your donation today . . . every gift – large or small – will be a big help.

REFLECTIONS – BEING AT HOME

One of the greatest stories ever told never actually happened. It was fiction. But we know that fiction may speak truths in the clearest and most convincing [and convicting] manner possible. The story is the parable that Jesus told of THE PRODIGAL SON. [more]


 

A SMALL CHANGE

At our recent Strategic Planning HOPE Africa decided to change the last word in our full name from Health, Opportunity, Partnership, Employment to Empowerment.  This was done to reflect what our work is currently all about.  While we feel that employment is important, we rather empower and equip people with the necessary skill to find employment.
