ILLUMINATE THE LAST CHAPTER in the lives of children and adults with terminal illness

Provide days without suffering to patients at the end of their lives.

Our story

“Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.” – Desmond Tutu.

 

Be the light and the daily hope in the path of children and adults with terminal illnesses.

 

We live in a society in which death is a taboo, we are not prepared to console, we do not know what to say. At a national level in Guatemala, we do not have a system prepared to serve people with terminal diagnoses, therefore, these people are sent to their homes without accompaniment, without supplies or monitoring, in a country where 59.3% of the population live in poverty and extreme poverty, being mostly indigenous-rural population, children being the main affected, hospitals and health services are far from the most needy of these and often do not have the supplies to serve them, then they are dismissed with the phrase “there is nothing to do”. However, STILL THERE IS A LOT TO OFFER.

 

In Guatemala, 96,000 people require Palliative Care per year; In Hospice Villa de la Esperanza (Village of Hope) we provide comprehensive palliative care, based on a holistic vision, providing quality of life to those patients with limited resources who otherwise would not have access to medical resources, adequate food, comfort, professional accompaniment and privacy in the final moments of his life.

 

With your support and donation we will be able to provide:

  • Medications to control symptoms
  • Medical care.
  • Nursing care 24/7 – 365 days a year.
  • Food for the patient and a family member.
  • Cleaning, security and maintenance
  • One private room per patient
  • Emotional and spiritual support.
  • Closing circles: a way of fulfilling a pending wish (reuniting with a parent, to visiting the ocean)
  • Funeral service support and transfer to their community, when they die.
  • Support at home, when the patient cannot move to the hospice.

 

Help us by donating days of light for all those patients with scarce resources who deserve quality of life at the end of their lives. Donate, share and enlighten the lives of thousands of Guatemalans.

 

YOUR DONATION WILL ALLOW TO MAKE THIS MOMENT OF MIXED FEELINGS, A MOMENT OF PEACE, RELIEF, NOSTALGIA AND ILLUMINATE BOTH THE HEART OF THE PATIENT AND THAT OF HIS FAMILY.

 

BE THE LIGHT AND THE HOPE THAT ILLUMINATES THESE SMALL AND GREAT WARRIORS.

Que Dios los bendiga por transmitir esta gran ayuda a la gente que lo necesita en tiempos de suma tristeza.
