There are many unique and meaningful opportunities to serve as a volunteer with Hospice Without Borders.   Keep reading to learn more...



One can also serve with us in Rwanda.  Our partners in Kibogora and Kigali are operating year round and thus your volunteer participation is not contingent upon us being in Rwanda; however, travel to Rwanda is an involved and preparing to travel there to volunteer in hospice work will require significant coordination, learning, and time.   


Having said all that, serving in Rwanda is one of the most moving  and transformative opportunities to serve a people, still recovering from a genocide 30 years ago.  It is a great opportunity to practice Trauma Informed Care.  


For those working in healthcare, in particular those who have an interest in hospice and palliative care and want to experience direct patient and family care in Africa, or those interested in learning about improving access to essential medicines and or working with partners in the international settings - this experience has much to offer. 


You don't have to be healthcare provider to join us in Rwanda.   We've had builders, pastors, quilters, artists, and teachers.   We all bring our own unique gifts to bear and anyone can come to serve in Rwanda.  Death and Dying affects us all and we all have something to offer in service to our fellow human beings on the path.  



HWB volunteers get together every Saturday and Sunday to prepare and deliver meals to our friends at the Interfaith Works Emergency Overnight Shelter.  




 During our 4 week Present to Dying Contemplative Care Training Programs we greatly need the support of 1-4 committed volunteers to help with with our lunch service and coordination of the retreat logistics, and also to serve as a witness to retreat participants.  (Volunteering for this role requires having successfully completed Present to Dying). 



One who has completed Present to Dying may wish to serve in the community as a Compassionate Companion to the dying.   This unique volunteer service opportunity creates a means to be of service to a person in the community living with a terminal illness, or their entourage, who further wish to further explore themes of thoughtful inquiry, meaning, advanced planning, and legacy surrounding death and dying.   We will launch Compassionate Companions in 2024!
