Many of you have generously made donations in the past that have helped provide crucial care for patients. We’re very excited to let you know that Hospice Ethiopia UK has been selected again this year to participate in the Big Give Christmas Challenge 2021, the UK’s largest match funding campaign.
We will be raising money specifically to pay for the development of the palliative care service at one of the largest public hospitals in Ethiopia. The project will target St Paul’s Hospital Oncology and Emergency Departments where palliative care is desperately needed. 50 key personnel will be trained at this large teaching hospital. This follows on from the successful development of an Ethiopian standardised palliative care training course in 2020, developed jointly by HE with the Federal Ministry Of Health (Big Give 2020 project).
If successful it is hoped this project will be repeated in other public hospitals thereby improving palliative care across Ethiopia.
Donations to this project will be matched for 7 days, from 12pm on Tuesday 30th November. So, every pound donated during that period means two pounds for Hospice Ethiopia.
How do I donate?
If you would like to support our work this year, we highly recommend doing so during the Christmas Challenge when your donation will make even more of a difference to Hospice Ethiopia.
After 12 noon on the 30th November, please visit our page at the biggive.org and follow the instructions. Please note that donations made via other means will not be matched, so it’s really important to go through the ‘big give’ website.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Finally, please pass on this message to anyone who you think might be interested in supporting us and having their donation doubled.
