Wolf Kreft from Hyundai Somerset West shares why he supports Helderberg Hospice

The reason why I got involved with Helderberg Hospice is that they set an example in terms of their ethics and the way they conduct themselves.

Wendy Koblischke is a caregiver who has no bounds for giving

She has been a volunteer at Helderberg Hospice since July 2015, and presently Wendy gives personal care to one of our patients.

A dedication to a grandmother’s love and tenacity

Julie’s beaming smile and peals of laughter belied the fact that she was ill.






Why give to Helderberg Hospice?

The first reason is that we’re all connected in our humanity, and in our immediate and larger community. None of us is an ‘island’, and we’re here to help and support one another.

The second reason is that at some time in life each one of us will be touched by the situation of knowing someone who is facing a life-threatening illness. This makes it very personal - and is the reason why we encourage the whole Helderberg community to ‘Know us before you need us.’

The third reason is that hospice care could be needed by someone who is near and dear – and what better place to have that care immediately available than in our Helderberg community.

Whilst we welcome your much needed donations, we also welcome you. Our door is always open to visitors, including anyone just wanting to know more about palliative care, and how hospice operates. Knowledge is power.

The major reason is that we promote ‘life’. When anyone is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, every day is important – to be lived to the full, and wherever possible, free from distressing symptoms. ‘Quality of life’ is a precious gift for patients and their loved ones. That gift is in your hands to give with our involvement.
