Get your raffle ticket and support the Knysna-Sedgefield Hospice

The Knysna Sedgefield Hospice fundraising committee has come up with a creative way to raise the money needed to continue offering care to its 240 patients and daily operations.

The Hospice offers home-based care to HIV/Aids and cancer patients, as well as people who suffer from other chronic illnesses.

CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies spoke to Glenda Cleland, a fundraising committee member at the Knysna- Sedgefield Hospice.

We have about six nurses and social workers. They travel about 10 000 km a month visiting these patients providing palliative care, support for the family, loan of medical equipment and soup kitchen for day patients.
