Who are we?

Established in 1979 as the first hospice in Africa, Island Hospice and Healthcare (Island) was born out of the recognition that there was need for direct home-based palliative care for those with life threatening illnesses and their families, as well as a comprehensive bereavement service. It pioneered the development of expert palliative care services, including bereavement services for families of deceased patients and for the general community suffering loss due to any cause, including trauma and violence. Island, from its beginning until the present, has played a major role in scaling up palliative care in Zimbabwe and regionally. Island has been recognized as a centre of excellence by the World Health Organization following its nomination to be a demonstration site for the region.

What will the money be used for?

Palliative care is required for a wide range of diseases for adults and children including cardiovascular diseases, cancer, chronic respiratory diseases, HIV and AIDS and diabetes.
The funds raised will be used to purchase essential medicines as well as strengthen provision of bereavement services to families and individuals.

Who will manage the efforts?

Mudiwa Mundawarara (Executive Director) and Elias Masendu (Finance and Human Resources Manager) will coordinate all funds and ensure all branches are supported to provide essential palliative care and bereavement services to the Zimbabweans in need.
