Summary

We stand with everyone else around the world in these very difficult times of COVID-19 as the entire globe is affected by this pandemic. This outbreak has posed a serious challenge for us in the provision of the palliative care services to our patients and ensuring that our staff has appropriate protective equipment. However, we will try to continue to provide the much needed care amidst the threat but we need your support to enable us to do this.

Challenge

This pandemic has posed a serious challenge for us in providing palliative care to patients and families due to the lock down. As the number of cases of CORVID-19 increases the measures to control the spread of the virus from one person to another includes a ban on all public transport and only using registered private vehicles. Thus some staff have to walk 5km to get to work and patients struggle to access essential treatment. Alongside this a lack of PPE prevents us from providing care.

Solution

This project will help to lessen the burden, and enable us to continue to provide the much needed care amidst this pandemic, through prayer and also through sending financial contributions to enable us to: reach the patients in the hospitals for the pain and symptoms and also for our volunteers; purchase much needed personal protective equipment; and continue to provide spiritual and psychosocial support via telephone so our patients and their families remain cared for and reduce suffering .

Long-Term Impact

The long-term impact of this project is that the team will be able to continue to provide palliative care for the patients, reduce suffering and support those losing loved ones at this time.
