Self Defense refresher day

Jeanne-Mari gave our staff a refresher course on self defense. Fun was had by all but most importantly we were reminded yet again of how vulnerable our care workers are when they are in the field and entering people’s homes, often in dangerous areas. Thank you Jeanne for sharing your knowledge and experience with us all!

However, despite the chaos and fear that the fires created in our beautiful town, it was ‘business as usual’ for Knysna Sedgefield Hospice. Thanks to the 5 star accredited training of our clinical staff, our patient care was able to…

Take care of yourself first… How often do we hear the expression, ‘take care of yourself first because you can’t pour from an empty cup’? But as women, we are so busy juggling our kids, spouses, parents, friends and careers that we ask ourselves “how it is that I can possibly find the time or energy to ‘take care’ of me!” We are advised to give ourselves ‘me time’.

My Village Card

We unfortunately only average at R1600 per month. We desperately need help to reach our target of R2500 per month in 2017. This is a passive and most importantly a sustainable form of income for us and one that is so easy to administer, saving precious time which enables us to focus on the many fundraising activities within our organisation. This so easy it achieve with the help of you, our…
