A network of community volunteers is spread throughout the region. This group is essential as a link between Rays of Hope Hospice Jinja (RHHJ) and the community. The RHHJ volunteers refer clients for evaluation and enrolment, and follow up and work with the clients at their homes. Whenever possible people who have been or still are clients of Rays of Hope are selected as community volunteers. They have themselves experienced the physical and social pain of disease and thus better understand the needs of the client.
The community volunteers are given regular refresher courses, where they come together, share experiences and get updated on new issues related to our work and collaboration.
