Taking Nelson Mandela’s words, “May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fear” to heart, community members from all walks of life gave back to South Coast Hospice on Mandela Day.
The team from Radio Sunny South offered their 67 minutes (and a whole lot more) washing all the Hospice vehicles.
These Hospice vehicles are used to visit patients in their homes, to visit children in need of counseling, and to clinics.
SAPS also visited Hospice with cake and gifts for the staff as tokens of their appreciation and care packs for the patients.
“You guys do such good work taking care of all these people. We just wanted to show our appreciation,” Ruwaida Khan from SAPS told the Hospice staff.
Those who were not able to give of their time were invited to donate R67 towards patient care and were gifted with ‘We Support Hospice Care’ bracelets.
“Thank you to all who supported this initiative,” said Joy Moodley, Media and Volunteer Coordinator at South Coast Hospice.
“Every bit counts toward keeping our Hospice sustainable, ensuring that we can be there for those who need compassionate and caring palliative care.
“A Hospice can be a sad place, but it is also a place of hope knowing that you can be supported and cared for on your journey.
“We are sincerely grateful to DJ Crown, Vincent and Mbongeni for their hard work and to everyone who chose to donate their 67 minutes to Hospice.”
