Sponsor a Patient

Please consider sponsoring a patient.  It costs roughly $100 per month to support a patient’s medical and basic living expenses.   Setting up a regular monthly donation is the most sustainable way to help Hospice Ethiopia, even a small regular donation can achieve so much.

Consider giving a regular gift

There are hundreds of patients that we are needing to provide ongoing support of medicine, some housing and emotional support.  Your donation will greatly improve the quality of life for our patients as they battle difficult health situations in extreme poverty.  We thank you in advance for your support.

Please give whatever you can afford, any size of gift is greatly appreciate and in a country where the average entry-level salary range from $35-40 per month your gift can truly bless many.

When considering your donation, please see the below list of expenses we need assistance with:

  • $10  per month pays for a bereavement support package to help a family cope with their loss
  • $15 per month pays the telephone bill for all Hospice Ethiopia’s staff mobile phones
  • $25 per month pays for the ‘Comfort Fund’ for one patient and their family, to allow them to buy the basics to live
  • $70 per month pays for a social worker
  • $165 per month pays for a junior nurse
  • $285 per month pays for a senior nurse
  • $400 per month pays for the drugs needed for all the patients at Hospice Ethiopia.

Attend Hospice and Palliative Care Training

One of the crucial areas of support is the need for trained skilled nurses to help patients and families at Hospice Ethiopia.  If you live in Ethiopia and would like more information about getting palliative care training we would like you to contact us.

If you are outside Ethiopia and have medical training that could benefit our patients, please contact us and we can explore ways in which we may partner together.

Remembering a charity in your Will can be a powerful way to ensure that your estate continues to help the most vulnerable after you are no longer here. Legacies allow charities, like Hospice Ethiopia to support the causes that are most important to you for generations to come.

Legacies have the power to transform lives in Ethiopia and create long term positive change.

What you may consider to be a small part of your estate can change the fortunes of people living in poverty.

Please email estateplanning@hospiceethopia.com and we will send you information on how to ensure your legacy is fulfilled.

Can One Person Really Make a Difference?

Absolutely YES! Although only having one Hospice for 100 million people may seem to be an overwhelming task, we have been excited to see the difference just one person can make when they begin to share the love and compassion for those suffering.

We need ambassadors all around the world to  communicate the mission and needs of Hospice Ethiopia!   Please consider partnering with us!

Join us in Ethiopia!

We would love to see you join us in Ethiopia to learn about Hospice Ethiopia, have an amazing cup of Ethiopian coffee, tour our facilities and meet our staff!

There are a variety of areas that we could use support from within Ethiopia and afar.  We especially need support in the areas of Hospice and Palliative care.  However, many that don’t have medical expertise have traveled and learned about Hospice Ethiopia in order to develop partnerships around the world.


We have had many visitors tour our facilities and others that have come to help with a specific area.  Stephanie recently visited and is helping update our website. Jim visited Hospice Ethiopia to help review our financial documents.

We are always looking to increase the awareness of Hospice Ethiopia’s mission!
