One of the ex-patients who had been admitted for rehabilitation, his condition improved and he returned to work. He takes time off from work to attend prayer days and hospice days and he motivates others that he is the living testimony that if you take your chronic medication as prescribed by the doctor, abstain from toxic substances and live a positive life style, you will have a good quality of life and live longer.
Mandela Day 2012
Evangelist from the Methodist Church in Alexandra, he is mandated by the church to work hand in hand with the hospice. He is always available to offer spiritual upliftment and prayers and at all the functions that are held by the organisation.
The Leap School of Science and Maths in Limbro Park has formed a partnership with the hospice for the students to do community service at the Hospice and Rehabilitation Centre. The students clean, fundraise for the lunch or dinner that they will be serving to the patients, gardening, play mind stimulating games, read and provide entertainment by singing for all the patients. These activities are carried out once quarterly and gives much hope and determination to the patients to get better and return home to their families.
The whole idea is to raise a nation of caring citizens by making them aware of the realities of life (especially the impact of HIV/AIDS, a scourger which is ravaging the nation through ignorance), so that they live a positive life. They are also being groomed to become responsible future leaders who will give back to their communities.
