Stepping Stone Hospice gives back for Mandela Day

Members of the clinical team at Stepping Stone Hospice spent the morning of Mandela Day, 18 July, handing out knitted toys and winter warmers to the children and mothers in the paediatric and maternity units at Bertha Gxowa Hospital in Germiston and at South Rand Hospital. The hospice’s community sisters also handed out parcels containing scarves, beanies and blankets to home-based patients in Katlehong and Vosloorus. All of the knitted items were generously made and donated to Stepping Stone by members of the community over the last couple of months.

“Part of our future strategy at Stepping Stone Hospice is to be able to accommodate children and adolescents with life-limiting illnesses, and that’s why we decided to make it about them this Mandela Day,” explains Stepping Stone Clinical Services Manager, Sr Sheryl Newman. “We were warmly welcomed at the hospitals and homes we visited and would like to extend our thanks and gratitude to everyone involved for the opportunity.”
