Butterfly Children’s Hospices – THE BUTTERFLY HOME
Butterfly Children’s Hospices was founded to support families of children with life-limiting conditions and life-threatening illnesses. Our mission is to ensure that all children are afforded dignity and love in life and death. Our wish is to keep families and children together wherever possible, supporting caregivers of fragile children to access and provide the best palliative care available. We have become a beacon for children’s palliative care services in China, advocating, inspiring and training excellence in holistic palliative care. Since 2006, we have provided loving care and treatment for sick and abandoned babies and children at our hospice in Changsha. We are now working in partnership with government, hospitals, social welfare institutions and professional associations, to develop and support holistic models of children’s palliative care across China.
