ABOUT FWC HOSPICE
We believe that life is a precious and fragile journey of growth and development; and although death may be a time of sadness and separation, dying is a part of life’s journey that can be embraced with love and dignity.
FWC Hospice & Care Centre initially started to care for HIV/Aids patients in 1991 in a rented building in Hursthill, assisting government with the HIV/Aids pandemic. In 2001, we purchased the Little Gate Shopping Centre on auction and renovated and moved into it in 2009, where we are currently situated. We also extended our services to palliative, frail and hospice care.
FWC will not stray from its mission to of providing holistic and comprehensive support to all in dire need of it within the community. Our organisation promises to continue to seek support from our community where the need is the greatest and to establish and grow local partnerships to deliver comprehensive services that can be sustained over time. Our plans include a continued collaboration with local partners with an eye towards transitioning our programs once they are established centres of excellence. FWC seeks to continue to grow and strengthen relationships within academic health and educational institutions, while delivering superior services to all students and patients.
Ways to Support Us
Over the years, we’ve received substantial in-kind and monetary support from our community. They’ve always been generous with donations ranging from food products, clothing, furniture and computers. It’s through their support that we’ve been able to continue to keep our doors open and provide for those in need of our care. Due to these concessions we’re always seeking monetary support to maintain our facility and its operational costs.
