Become a Pal to Paedspal
Paedspal is looking for Pals!
If you have visited our offices in Rondebosch, you may have seen the saying that is inscribed on our wall:
“Life’s journey is always easier when you hear a friend’s footsteps beside you.”
Now more than ever during these uncertain times, we all need friends who can come alongside us. The word friend is encapsulated in our organisation’s name – Paedspal – and is a play on words with the ‘pal’ being a shortening of the word ‘palliative’ as well as a colloquial word for ‘friend’. If they say it takes a village to raise a child, it certainly takes a very big city to raise a chronically ill child. Unless you’ve actually done this yourself, I don’t think you can truly appreciate how hard this is. Raising a ‘normal child’ is hard enough but one that has complex needs is really tough.
Paedspal’s vision is to enable children with life limiting conditions to live as well as possible for as long as possible. To this end, our multidisciplinary team offers a range of holistic services, providing medical, physical, emotional and spiritual relief to our patients and their families, at NO COST to them. But the real cost of these services is significant and sadly, paediatric palliative care is not financially supported by the government.
