There are many unique and meaningful opportunities to serve as a volunteer with Hospice Without Borders. Keep reading to learn more...
HWB volunteers get together every Saturday and Sunday to prepare and deliver meals to our friends at the Interfaith Works Emergency
Overnight Shelter. We deliver dinner on Saturday evenings and a take away brown bag lunch both Saturdays and Sundays.
One can volunteer at Amahoro House. This is a unique opportunity because it allows a volunteer to serve directly with 3 homeless guests per shift that come to Amahoro House to shower, rest, exercise some agency, and participate in community building. For the volunteer, it is an opportunity to bear witness, cultivate compassion, generosity, and ultimately tear down the barriers we erect between ourselves and 'others.'
We are now launching our C.A.R.E.S. program, that aims to get essential patient care supplies to families in need. To participate in this program, one must have a car and be able to drive to either pick up or drop off supplies. In addition, C.A.R.E.S. allow you to serve as a hospice volunteer. You may be conducting a bereavement visit and tending to families working through the grief process. This is a unique and meaningful way to be a hospice volunteer. If you are interested in C.A.R.E.S. we are planning to offer a Training in the near future and will keep you updated.
One can also serve with us in Rwanda. Our partners in Kibogora 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.
Yet, it is one of the most moving and transformative opportunities to serve a people, still recovering from a genocide 25 years ago. This opportunity is ideal for hospice and palliative care practitioners (physicians, PA, ARNP, RN, MSW, Chaplains) to experience direct patient and family care in Africa.
If you would like to volunteer with us in one of our programs or simply leave a message, please use the contact form below. We look forward to hearing from you and will return your message as soon as possible. We are all volunteers at HWB so please be patient with us...And Thank You!
