People Accompanying People
We provide free palliative care and integral support to vulnerable families experiencing an illness that threatens or limits the life of one of their children.
Help us finish the construction and equip the hospice, and be part of the Casa Khuyana family.
Please, watch “The Casa Khuyana Story”
If we cannot add days to
a child's life, we will add life to their days.
Palliative Care focuses on the person, not on the illness.
When a cure is not possible, we can still accompany and care.

What is Palliative Care?
Palliative care is an approach that improves the quality of life for patients and their families in the face of the challenges associated with life-threatening illnesses. The caregivers focus on providing patients with relief from pain and other symptoms, whatever the diagnosis, as well as offering emotional, social and spiritual support to the child and their family.
Palliative care is provided by a multidisciplinary team of professionals that includes doctors, nurses, psychologists, therapists, and other specialists who work to provide comfort and well-being.
Death is an instant, everything else is life. Palliative care is there so that all of their life is the best it can possibly be.
