We are pleased to announce that we are expanding our Give a goat project to the Tororo hospice community in Uganda. On our most recent community outreach trip, Jessica Sohn and Melanie Bien met with Denis, a social worker with the community, to get the ball rolling. Denis has already begun identifying the first 10 families and Moses, our Project Manager, will begin meeting with them soon.
Denis provides outreach services to 125 community members enrolled in hospice. His program offers medical support, compassionate end-of-life care, and follow-up grief counseling for adults and children. Most of the families Denis serves live way below the poverty line and are eager for the economic opportunities the Give a goat program brings to them. Stay tuned as we meet the families in Tororo.
Jessica Sohn and Melanie Bien gather with Tororo community members to thank Mission Hospice.
