Selian Hospice’s Adopt-a-Care Worker program is a simple new way for you to empower care workers in East Africa to provide holistic palliative care to their communities!

Selian’s care workers are community leaders who volunteer their time to serve on the frontlines of palliative care in Arusha, Tanzania. These highly-trained women and men identify patients in need of care, provide medical and psychosocial support, and engage local communities in efforts to reduce stigma (especially regarding HIV/AIDS). Without them, it would be impossible for Selian Hospice to reach even a fraction of the thousands of patients and families who are currently receiving medical, psychosocial, spiritual, and nutritional care.

Your donation to this sponsorship program is fantastically cost-effective: only $20 per month allows each care worker to serve anywhere from 60-150 people affected by chronic medical conditions! There is no shortage of care workers waiting to jump back in or patients in need of care – the only thing missing is funding. Please consider making a one-time $250 donation that will empower one care worker, like those highlighted below, for an entire year. Simply hit the donate button, enter $250 as the donation amount, and choose Selian – Adopt-a-Care Worker from the drop-down list. Your generous gift is sure to transform hundreds of lives and dramatically increase the amount of patients Selian is able to serve!

If you have any questions about the program or how your donation will be used, please send an email to Development Intern Summer Downs at sdowns@care4denver.org.
