Ashton College Students Making A Difference

Ashton International College

Hospice East Rand received a generous donation from Ashton International College Benoni recently, which will support the NPO in continuing to provide essential palliative care to patients with life-threatening illnesses.

As beneficiaries of their Debutant and Squires program for 2022, Hospice East Rand attended an inspiring assembly alongside The Guardians, The Albinism Society of South Africa, and the Boksburg SPCA to receive a cheque.

The Debutant and Squires program is designed to encourage a spirit of philanthropy and social responsibility among their learners, providing them with the opportunity to engage in charitable work throughout the year.

Hospice East Rand has been serving the community for over 30 years, providing essential care and support to patients diagnosed with a life-limiting illness and their families. The organization offers a range of services, including pain and symptom management, emotional support and spiritual support. Donations are critical to the ongoing success of Hospice East Rand, as the NPO relies heavily on contributions from community members, schools, and other organizations.

The generous donation from Ashton International College Benoni is a testament to their commitment to social responsibility and community service. By supporting organizations like Hospice East Rand, learners are developing important skills and values while making a real difference in the lives of those in need.

“We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to Ashton International College Benoni for their support and partnership. The donation will help ensure that essential care and support continue to be provided to patients and families in the community.”
