Friend of Hospice

Home Support Us Friend of Hospice

Help us to support and empower people who are dying in Otago to live well and die well.

Otago Community Hospice needs your help. We have to raise $2.5 million each and every year from our community to continue providing the quality free palliative service to those who need support when they are facing the end of their lives.

You can help by becoming a Friend of Hospice and setting up an automatic payment - any amount helps. Your regular payment will go directly to the costs associated with specialist palliative care.
