Help support Selian Hospice in East Africa.
About our partnership
Since 2001, The Denver Hospice has partnered with Selian Lutheran Hospice on best practices and approaches to hospice care. The Denver Hospice also provides educational and financial support to Selian’s programs and conducts staff trips to Arusha, Tanzania every two years.
From our dynamic partnership, Selian has transformed from an organization serving less than 100 patients to over 5,000 at its peak in 2016. A majority of Selian patients are HIV+ and many of those also have TB. Selian Hospice provides medications, basic food supplies, and psycho-social support to patients.
Today, Selian Hospice continues to provide quality and compassionate care, made possible by a dedicated team of volunteers and staff, despite drastic cuts from USAID funding support in 2016.
Selian Hospice is the cornerstone of palliative care in East Africa and would not exist without generous support from the The Denver Hospice. The partnership between the Denver Hospice and Selian Hospice has raised over $750,000 Selian Lutheran Hospice since 2001.
