Hospis Malaysia presents “Speak Up, there’s an elephant in the room” campaign.
A series of 10 elephant sculptures in the Cik Gajah Limited Edition series by Yusuf Gajah will be on display in Suria KLCC to encourage people to “Speak Up”.
Show your support with a purchase of exclusive merchandises or our CSR initiatives to be launched soon.
Speak Up – There’s An Elephant in the room is a campaign to encourage conversations that matter for patients living with life-limiting illnesses such as cancer, organ failure, HIV/AIDs and degenerative neurological conditions, and create awareness of how with good palliative care, patients’ quality of life can improve.
Every year, 4 out of 10 Malaysians will require palliative care at the end of their lives*. Currently less than 10% have access to it.
SPEAK UP aims to:
- Empower patients and their families to have conversations that matter.
- Reduce the stigma of living with a life-limiting illness.
- Encourage the public to advocate for better access to quality palliative care.
