The Hospice Association of the Witwatersrand struggles in South Africa to assist and to comfort young children suffering from AIDS.
This south-african NGO aims to provide appropriate cares to deprived people and young children infected by AIDS.
The palliative care does not consist in life-prolonging treatments, but essentially focuses on emotional distress. To comfort the child, to share his pain, to bring him medical care while coming along with him to the inevitable, is the hard task of the Hospice No end to caring.
The Association manages many departments for its patients, children and adults, provides training lessons to palliative care, as well as school education for the children of the ill patients.

The building of the new hospice has been achieved in the beginning of 2007. The center was officially opened on 16th april; it contains a children unit and a special unit for the children of deceased patients or patients with end-stage diseases.
The contribution of AMADE Mondiale (61.923 €) is destinated to finance the running costs of a 5-bedded paediatric palliative care ward for a whole year: doctors, nurses, social workers, food, drugs.
