Wear a hat for children needing palliative care

Umduduzi held a ‘Hats On’ event at Albert Luthuli Hospital last year with a surprise visit from KZN MEC for Health, Dr Sibongiseni Dhlomo

The International Children’s Palliative Care Network (ICPCN) has chosen Friday 13 October 2017 to be a day for raising funds and international awareness of the work of children’s hospices and children’s palliative care (CPC) services worldwide. The campaign is called Hats On 4 CPC and #HatsOn4CPC on Social media. The day raises funds for children’s palliative care, but more importantly, raises awareness of the rights of very sick children with incurable and life-threatening illnesses to receive palliative care.

Who can join in the fun?
Anyone and everyone can take part in the campaign.You can get involved at various levels, either as:

  • An individual
  • A school or company
  • A children’s palliative care service or NGO
