An important message:

If this is your first visit then welcome to our Web Site. I hope that you will be able to find out much more about what we are and what we do. A special thankyou to the whole host of supporters and friends who have been with us over the years. We hope that you will continue to enjoy sharing the news of our work in Uganda and Africa.

We are particularly writing now to let you know that this is a difficult year for Hospice Africa in Uganda(HAU). We are faced with a huge financial challenge. As you may be aware, 60% of the funding for HAU was given by USAID. Now, after due notice, the change in policy within USAID in Washington means this is coming to an end very shortly. In 1993 when we commenced there was only enough funding for three team members for three months but a lot of FAITH! The FAITH remains big but the funding is suddenly dropping....
So we are now asking for each of our supporters in UK to help us a little bit more. Can you help with a donation now? Can you commit to giving a monthly amount? Have you any ideas where YOU could raise money locally. Look here on our Website for more ideas. Please send any more ideas or suggestions to us and let’s brain storm a way forward in this most generous of countries. If you think you can help contact us via email at hospiceafrica@hospiceafrica.plus.com

Something to think about ...

Why not volunteer your time to come to Uganda and see the difference HAU is making in the homes of patients? This can change your values and outlook on life. But don’t be afraid of this. It can only get better!! All ages encouraged!!

Appeal

oral morphine the key to pain relief

Oral morphine, used according to the formula devised by Dr Anne, is a very effective, cheap and non-addictive form of pain relief.

Young patients

These smiling children with dolls knitted by supporters all have Burkitt's Lymphoma

Comforting touch

A patient at a day clinic relaxes and is kept comfortable with a blanket knitted by supporters in Ainsdale. Hospice care looks to the whole patient.
