100’s and 1000’s Challenge
Iris House Children’s Hospice has a challenge for all of South Africa. Due to the growing demand for our respite care and support services, we need to increase the amount of care we can offer in the community and at our hospice.
But to do so, we need to ensure we can meet the additional cost. Remember ALL Iris House Children’s Hospice services are FREE to our families . We are in fact not asking you to donate; we are asking you to give a relatively small token of gratitude for your healthy children.
Iris House children are ALL life limited or life threatened. They did not ask to be born with a special need; their parents love them just as you love your children. Mom’s and Dad’s face daily challenges, hospital visit’s, infections, various therapies just to help their child have a better quality of life. Often our children are misunderstood, even feared, people cross the road to avoid facing a special needs child.
The answer is usually a fear of the unknown and a lack of knowledge about special needs.
We invite you to visit us at our hospice and meet our children. Look into their eyes and see the loving child not their syndrome. Take a tour with our care team and see for yourself the difference quality care and therapies make in the quality of a child’s life.
We are asking 100 Company’s to each donate R1000 ( the price of a set of ink cartridges)
1000 individuals to donate R100 each. (the price of 2 Mac Donalds meals)
The money raised will ensure that we can increase our community-based care and also expand into Bellville and Kuilsriver. We also plan to add another day to our Hospice sessions. (Currently, we are open Monday, Wednesday and Saturday’s half day)
