HospiceWits is a charitable organisation that relies on support from the public to keep it running. It supplies quality hospice and palliative care to residents in the communities of Johannesburg and Soweto, and surrounding areas.
Why not support HospiceWits in their efforts to bring end-of-life care to their patients as well as mental, emotional, and spiritual support to patients, employees and families. This Mandela month, embrace the legacy of Madiba and help others.

- Support the HospiceWits charity shops
HospiceWits has three charity shops in Johannesburg located in Orange Grove (199 Louis Botha Avenue), Kensington (163 Queen Street) and Benmore (Cnr 11th Street and Elizabeth Avenue, Benmore). With thrift shopping gaining popularity, these shops serve as the ideal places to find hidden gems, from vintage clothes to appliances and furniture. All proceeds from these shops go to support the work that HospiceWits does.
HospiceWits accepts financial donations from the public as well as donations of pre-loved items for their charity shops. You can also donate cleaning items, furniture, and clothing to be utilised at the hospice itself. You can donate quality used goods to any of the HospiceWits charity shops – they will even come and collect your items for you! If there is someone you wish to honour and remember, you can purchase a virtual globe for the HospiceWits Tree of Light [insert link: https://www.tree-of-light.co.za/] or you can make a direct financial contribution by clicking here [insert link: https://hospicewits.co.za/donate/]
HospiceWits has a wish list of items that they would be keen to stock up on for their patients. This includes medical equipment such as adult nebulising masks, electronic BP machines, various kinds of dressings and surgical gauze, humidifier disposable sets, and for patient comfort, adult Moli disposable nappies.
They also need two-ton trucks to assist with picking up donations along with other items such as a projector to use in training, urns for coffee and tea, blinds, computers and laptops, an industrial shredding machine, and air conditioners.
Embrace the spirit of giving and support HospiceWits so that they can continue to provide quality palliative care to Johannesburg and Soweto communities. Change lives through your actions and donations. And remember, it doesn’t have to be Mandela Month to help make a difference to the lives of others.
