Thank you for supporting Hospice Ethiopia!



The aim of Hospice Ethiopia is to improve the quality of life of patients with incurable diseases and support their families through provision of holistic palliative care services


Ethiopia has an estimated population of 100 million, but only one hospice. Many thousands of people are dying in distress, often in pain, with nowhere to turn.


Our team provides compassionate care to address Spiritual, Physical, Emotional well-being of our patients and their families. The medicine, housing, medical supplies and counseling are provided at no cost to our patients.



The high demand for care of chronically ill patients cannot be dealt with by the government health service alone even in the most optimal health care system. This calls for efficient community, home-based care where terminally ill patients, and their families, are provided with the necessary support they need.

Hospice Ethiopia (HE) is a non-profit organization that provides comprehensive palliative and hospice care and support to cancer and/or HIV and AIDS patients, largely in the capital city of Addis Ababa.
