Global Partners in Care


Since 2008, Pathways has partnered with Zimbabwe’s Bulawayo Island Hospice to provide financial and medical resources and to build a relationship for the mutual exchange of information, ideas and encouragement in order to enhance all aspects of end-of-life care.

Aspects of the partnership are administered by Global Partners in Care (previously known as FHSSA-the Foundation for Hospices in Sub-Saharan Africa). Global Partners in Care assists more than 80 U.S. hospice partners who have relationships with hospice and palliative care organizations throughout developing world.

Bulawayo Island Hospice Service typically serves more than 150 patients every month with a staff of eight!

Plea for Assistance

There is so much lacking that it is hard to know how to start building again. The basic needs are quality personnel, with reasonable remuneration, reliable cars with maintenance and fuel.” In Zimbabwe, 15% of adults are infected with AIDS and there are 975,000 orphans and vulnerable children. The political unrest has further eroded support systems. “You are a light at the end of a dark tunnel. Thank you for being so willing to try and help this ailing Hospice.

~ Daphne Clark, retired Director of Bulawayo Island Hospice
