The following photos were taken during my visit to Hospice in the West in Krugersdorp, the sister hospice to Alive Hospice in Nashville, TN. This marked a journey I'd been trying to make for several years.

Rhoda – A Hospice in the West patient. She lives in a squatter community the government
promises is only temporary.

She is HIV positive, but has found renewed health and hope
through the tireless efforts of hospice sisters (nurses are called sisters in this area).

Rhoda's home which she shares with her 13 year old son. My traveling friend/photographer has amazing photos that better capture our hospice patient visits. Once she has them sorted out, I will be happy to share them with you if you are interested. (Don’t let the outside appearance fool you…each home we saw was impeccably neat and clean – and reflected the personality of those living there.)
