How will this Advance project help to address the need?
1. Through the services provided by the FHOM – nursing, rehabilitation, activities of daily living, and residency services and facilities – we will be aiming to transform the lives of our residents and their families by giving the residents the best possible care, and supporting their families by holding part of their burdens, enabling them to have life with quality. 2. For the FHOM as a Christian organisation working in the field of disability, such projects will strengthen its services resulting in strengthening its relations with surrounding communities and societies, enabling its teams to bring about positive changes in those communities. 3. Supporting the families of the FHOM residents through the provided services will take part of the socio-economic burden off their shoulders positively affecting poverty and injustice.
