The idea is that from now on they will be assisting the team from Western Province Blood Transfusion Services (WPBTS) when they come to do the blood donation clinics at their school.
During the Q&A session yesterday a lot of the questions were answered by MHS pupils - which proved to me that they were listening!
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you, your local Rotary colleagues and your American donors very much indeed for the wonderful donation of medical products that you so kindly made to our organisation today. The items are a very welcome addition to our In-Patient Unit as we are always having to replenish our stock in order to serve our patients at the highest possible level. We are the only organisation offering Palliative Care in the entire Helderberg basin and serve a population of over 240 000 living in an area of 337 km² or 130 miles² our care is available to absolutely anyone who has been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness and who lives in our area. This care comes at a very high cost so we are very grateful indeed for your generous donation which will support our care.
A huge thank you to Sunrise Rotary and all concerned who were able to make this donation possible, from all staff and patients of Helderberg Hospice. Attached please find some photos from the handover.
