KHANYA Hospice gets many requests from people wanting to see the work that Hospice is doing in the huge area it serves - from Umbogintwini to Hibberdene - or from people wanting to volunteer in the Hospice shops.

“People want to come and see the impact that Hospice staff are making in the lives and circumstances of the terminally ill and experience first-hand the free palliative nursing care that Khanya Hospice offers to people with life-threatening diseases and the support given to their families,”, said CEO Neil McDonald.

“One such person is an international visitor, Niki Van Bommel, a professional nurse from a small town Sittard, in The Netherlands. This town is close to the border of Belgium and Germany. Niki came from The Netherlands to volunteer at a NGO in Pinetown, but heard about the work that Khanya Hospice is doing and decided to come to Khanya Hospice for a few days and see for herself,” he added.
Anyone wanting to contact Hospice can do so on 083 597 8985 or hospice@scottnet.co.za or go to the websitewww.khanyahospice.org.za - Supplied.
