Compassionate Care

Health Information

At present, Mirkuz is offering health-related information primarily focused on various cancer types and providing end-of-life care for individuals with a life expectancy of fewer than six months. This valuable health information is primarily disseminated through digital platforms such as our website, YouTube channel, Facebook, TikTok, LinkedIn and Twitter. We strive to reach a wide audience and provide accessible resources through these online channels.


At Mirkuz, we firmly believe that every cancer patient, regardless of their financial situation, deserves access to the best healthcare available. We are here to provide a helping hand because we recognize that the financial strain of medical expenditures may be debilitating. We strive to ensure that no one faces the additional stress of financial hardship while battling cancer.

Focus on life

Hospice Care

Hospice care is a type of health care that focuses on the palliation of a terminally ill patient's pain and symptoms and attending to their emotional and spiritual needs at the end of life. Hospice care prioritizes comfort and quality of life by reducing pain and suffering. Hospice care provides an alternative to therapies focused on life-prolonging measures that may be arduous, likely to cause more symptoms, or are not aligned with a person's goals.

Hospice care provides compassionate care for people in the last phases of incurable disease so that they may live out their remaining time as fully and comfortably as possible. The hospice philosophy accepts death as the final stage of life: it affirms life, but does not try to hasten or postpone

About Us

Mirkuz is an association established in 2023 by a group of like minded individuals from backgrounds in different fields, ranging from Doctors to entrepreneurs, with the same goal of helping educating and empowering individuals and families to make informed medical decisions while giving care to cancer patients. We believe that everyone deserves access to an appropriate end of life care that meets their unique physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. That's why we provide a wealth of information about hospice care. And we aim to make hospice care a fundamental part of healthcare, where individuals and families have access to the support and resources, they need to make informed decisions about their care.

Our story

In memory of the late Yeshewalul Tesema: beloved father, husband and friend From 1943 - 2014 E.C

In 2022/2014 Yeshewalul Tesema, father to two of our team members, was diagnosed with late stage pancreatic cancer. It is a difficult enough time watching someone you love declining at the speed most cancer patients do but the hopelessness that comes from not knowing how to help them makes it so much harder. Thanks to Yeshewalul’s family’s familiarity with the disease and the hours’ worth of research done on their part, they did not struggle much. But that was when they saw the gap; the lack of information there is concerning cancer and how to take care of patients with cancer in the Ethiopian community. Hoping to make it easier on others unfortunate to find themselves in the position of needing it, they began to conceptualize Mirkuz; a place where people can come to learn about cancer and end of life care, what it does to the patient and what a family/friend caregiver is expected to do when taking care of a patient. With the help of interested individuals Mirkuz was brought to life.
