Gilchrist Hospice Care and Nkoaranga Lutheran Hospital’s Hospice and Palliative Care program In Tanzania entered a formal partnership in 2009. It was originally envisioned that Gilchrist and Nkoaranga would share information and wisdom on best practices at the end of life, and that Gilchrist would offer modest financial support to Nkoaranga, which provides end of life care to thousands each year on a shoestring budget. However, when Nkoaranga’s main source of financial support ended in 2011, Gilchrist assumed a larger role in ensuring our partner’s very existence. We now fully fund Nkoaranga’s day to day operating budget and have helped the program expand, adding a palliative care physician and an ambulance to carry patients through the rugged terrain – all through the generosity of Gilchrist staff and donors.
