Fundación Jersey

We are a charity, motivated by our faith in Jesus Christ to help patients in Ecuador with life threatening illnesses. Our professional palliative care team consists of:

  1. Doctors
  2. Nurses
  3. Psychologists
  4. Pastoral workers
  5. Volunteers
.

    We teach others how to care for patients and their families at the end of life with courses for health care professionals. We also lobby the government to provide the care and medicines that our patients need.

    Palliative care improves the quality of life of patients and their families:

  1. through prevention and relief of suffering
  2. by the early identification and accurate assessment of pain and other physical, psychosocial and spiritual symptoms
  3. providse support and guidance to those who are in mourning.
