Msunduzi Hospice

The Msunduzi Hospice plays a very important part in the Msunduzi community because they provide home-based care to the elderly completely free of charge. 

Their carers visit infirm patients and take care of them during their time of need or illness. 

Although the hospice runs various income generation projects including a second-hand shop and a bookshop they still need support from their community. 

Hollywoodbets Dukwahs decided to support their good work by donating eggbox mattresses, foam wedges and mattresses to be used on hospital beds. 

Training Facilitator at the hospice, Heidi Collyer, thanked the company for their support. 

"We take a holistic approach in our home-based care which means that we look at the physical, emotional, social and spiritual aspects of care. This donation will actually help our patients hugely."

"Very often our patients get to the stage where they are bedridden so these eggbox mattresses will help to make them more comfortable and to prevent pressure sores. The wedges will be used by patients who can't breathe and can't lie down."

"We sometimes lend out hospital beds to our patients if the family is finding it difficult to care for them on a low bed, so we will use the bigger mattresses to go along with those beds."

"Thank you very much Hollywoodbets!" she said.
