Rural Help @ Hand

The role of Rural Help at  Hand is to provide  needed support for rural patients and their families in city hospitals across the country.
  • Rural Help at Hand (RHAH) aims to assist rural patients in practical ways so they can; to return to their family, the rural environment and their workplace as soon as possible.
  • RHAH volunteers offer and provide friendship, practical and emotional support to rural workers and their families during the recovery and rehabilitation stages.
  • RHAH volunteers work to assist in breaking down barriers of isolation, fear and loneliness that may exist for rural patients and their families now surviving in urban and city environments in the midst of crisis.
  • Building and maintaining a strong and positive link between home and the hospital in any way we can, big or small is a corner-stone of RHAH
  • RHAH advocates for and on behalf of rural patients with disabilities and their families to better ensure that their needs are understood and met.
  • Rural Help at Hand is set up and run by rural people for rural people. Our volunteers all come from a rural background and have some understanding of the realities of rural life and the practical needs of rural families.

Annette is currently looking for financial support and volunteers for Rural Help @ Hand, especially people who have organisational, promotional, computer, training and fundraising skills.
