  • The Anne Merriman Hospice Africa Foundation Is Announced

  • 1

As Hospice Africa has grown it has become evermore important to develop connections between its different parts.

There are fund raising organisations in the USA, Ireland, UK, and France; not to mention Hospice Africa Uganda and the Institute for Hospice and Palliative Care in Africa, which provide the services.

To bring this diaspora together; and to coordinate its work whilst preserving the Hospice Africa ethos "The Anne Merriman Hos-pice Africa Foundation" will be launched on the Founders birthday in 2016.

We will keep you posted on how this event will be celebrated. We plan to use the white “peace poppy” as our emblem and hope that you like the idea.
