In 2017 the Bishop’s Appeal in Norwich will be focused on raising money to provide a car for Hospice Ethiopia to reach those in need of palliative care.
Through the appeal, your money will go towards providing the Hospice with an off-road rental car for three years. Roads are often rough and of poor quality, and public transport is busy and unreliable. We want to help enable care and equipment to reach those who cannot travel to the hospice.
Cars are expensive and difficult to maintain given the availability of parts. By renting the vehicle all maintenance costs are included; well advised given the quality of the roads.
In addition, the nurses are frequently carrying medicines to their patients, in particular opiate pain killers, which would make them vulnerable on public transport.
