Organisations take hands to clothe, care

The Winter Knights project might be over, but Round Table Welkom 40 continues supporting the Goldfields community with an ongoing supply of clothing, bedding and curtains.

The Power of One, a local non-profit organisation, partnered with Welkom 40 to donate clothes and curtains to the Goldfields Hospice.

The Goldfields Hospice provides home-based care to some 350 patients and their families.

Hospice cares for patients with advanced progressive illnesses such as HIV/Aids and cancer or any life-threatening illness.

Hospice personnel provide holistic physical, emotional, spiritual and social care for patients and their family members.

They aim to improve the patients’ quality of life and support the families during the bereavement period after death.

“Hospice’s focus is to add life to days rather than days to life,” says Dr Igor Scheurkogel, founder of The Power of One.

“Three day care centres in the area offer 30 preschool children a place to find love, stimulation and meals. Many of these children are orphans, while others are either infected with or affected by HIV/Aids.”

“Working and helping organisations like Hospice Goldfields makes it worthwhile,” he says.
