THE Genesis Care Centre in Marburg recently received a much-needed helping hand from the Beekman Group. The centre has used the donation towards some of its patient care expenses, including new comforters.

Genesis provides medical, nursing, physical, psychosocial, rehabilitation and spiritual care for patients with HIV/Aids, TB, stroke victims, cancer and pressure sores. The patients are usually referrals from state hospitals.

Genesis manager, Sharon Jones, describes the step-down palliative facility as a place of hope.

“We face ongoing financial challenges in our daily operations, yet we strive to provide consistent quality care to those who need us. We are very grateful for the continued support from companies like the Beekman Group,” said Jones.

The Genesis Care Centre, the flagship project of the Genesis Trust, celebrated its 12th year in March.

“We offer a holistic approach towards every patient admitted to our care and our goal is to help them rediscover the joy of living one day at a time,” said Jones. Beekman Group director, Cindy Allan said the group believes in the importance of uplifting and supporting our communities through various outreach projects.

“We enjoy working and supporting the Genesis Trust because of its diverse­ range of projects that reach a multitude of communities in need,” said Allan.

Genesis has cared for almost 4 400 patients since it first opened its doors.
