A Night of Kujali - August 16, 2018

A Night of “Kujali” (Caring in Swahili) will honor Lisa Motz-Storey, heart of the Selian initiative for more than 14 years.

Since 2001, The Denver Hospice has partnered with Selian Lutheran Hospice in Arusha, Tanzania. Our partnership has helped Selian grow from a small home hospice program to a comprehensive hospice and palliative care program that at one point in 2015, served over 5,000 patients. But, due to falling HIV infection rates in that region, the US Agency for International Development (USAID) has discontinued its support for local HIV/ AIDS programs. Without that funding, Selian has had to make deep cuts to its program and staff and can now only serve a fraction of the patients they once did. The Denver Hospice is currently their only funder, and we are serving as a “bridge” until major funding can again be secured. The need is urgent as there is no other organization providing hospice care in this area.

We need your help now more than ever. Money raised at this event will help purchase medication for patients, support orphans and vulnerable children, pay salaries of the small professional staff, buy fuel for vehicles to reach patients, and provide food aid to the poorest of their patients.  Just the simple act of attending or making a donation will have a positive impact on the lives of hospice patients and families in Tanzania.
