In Sub-Saharan Africa, when a parent is struck with a life-limiting illness, the child often becomes the primary caregiver. With no source of money, the child must quit school to earn whatever living can be found, while still caring for his or her dying parent. But once the parent dies, the children are effectively orphaned. For these children, hope is something to be held onto tightly. It’s the hope there will be someone to offer them the chance for a better life.
The documentary Road to Hope, produced by the Hospice Foundation that supports Center for Hospice Care, documents the lives of child caregivers and those they meet on their journey.
Join us for a screening of the film and stay for a special Q & A session with the film's producer, Mike Wargo, and others touched by this special program.
Attendees will have an opportunity to purchase a DVD, support the program, or sponsor a child. Light refreshments will be provided.
