Awning Repair – Our covered parking at Howick Hospice House is in need of an upgrade. Roof sheeting to replace shade cloth and adjustments to the current wooden frame.
Kitchen Upgrade – Replace Cupboards and Flooring
Clinical Office – Upgrade Blinds and Carpet
Generator/ Inverter – Loadshedding is becoming a problem where staff with desktops cannot work, and older laptop batteries are no longer lasting, or telephone lines also go down meaning our Sisters cannot call in or out. We are also without internet during this time, which makes for a very unproductive period.
Laptop – a new or newer laptop is needed for our Marketing Department. Allowing work to continue during loadshedding and with a laptop more inter active talks can be presented to schools and corporate’s for awareness and fundraising purposes.
Mini Projector – Our current projector is faulty. It is also big and bulky, a smaller one would be much more practical to take out for Training Programmes and PR Talks.
2007 Ford Bantam Canopy – The donation of the Ford Bantam was such a blessing to the Howick Hospice Team, it would however be much more functional with a canopy.
Nissan 1400 Upgrade (Half Ton Bakkie)- Our little Nissan is used almost on a daily basis from donation collections, dump runs and general errands. It is unfortunately getting old and not reliable enough to go out into the community. We hope to upgrade this soon so that we have another usable vehicle.
Porridge – Morvite/ Futurelife for our HIV/TB patients, with nutrition being such a big contributor to wellbeing and comfort, we cater for our patients to ensure they have something to take their Arvs or TB medications with.
Toiletries – Vaseline, Soap Bars, Aqueous Cream, Toothpaste, Toothbrushes
