Hospice Ethiopia UK promotes the provision of palliative care in order to relieve the suffering of the terminally ill in Ethiopia.

Hospice Ethiopia UK provides financial, educational and practical support to Hospice Ethiopia in Addis Ababa. We perform fundraising activities, training and specialist support from the United Kingdom.


Hospice Ethiopia provides free medication, so that the dying have relief from pain, and medical care to alleviate the worst symptoms. 


The care given by Hospice Ethiopia is home-based: clinicians visit and treat patients in their own homes.


Hospice Ethiopia is working hard to train doctors, nurses and other medics about palliative care.

Success! You're on the list.
