One final push to reach our total

Dear Friends

ICPCN would like to thank each one of you for so generously donating to our Global GIving Challenge project which will fund the develpment of children's palliative care in Bangladesh through strategic training of doctors and nurses. We are incredibly grateful and have been quite overwhelmed by your generosity and your willingness to help us. Please be assured that your money will help to make an invaluable difference to the lives of thousands of children in this country who have such limited access to the comfort, relief from pain and emotional support that palliative care can provide.  

Since our last report there has been even further progress in our plans to develop children's palliative care programmes in Bangladesh in partnership with Drs Megan Doherty and Zohora Jameela Khan, based at the BSMMU Hospital in Dhaka and World Child Cancer. Our Chief Executive plans to visit Bangladesh in February 2016 to work on a strategic plan to make this happen, based on a similar project undertaken in the Maharashtra district of India. We have also been in contact with the founders of the ASHIC foundation which has been working to improve the quality of life of children affected by cancer in Dhaka since 1994. 

Our position in the challenge
We are just £1,380 from our hoped for target of £5,000 with only 2 days to go to the end of the challenge. ICPCN is presently lying in 9th place on the Global Giving Gateway Challenge leader board with a total of £3,620 from 52 unique donors. We could still win this, with your help! 

We would love you to join us in this final push to reach our target. Please consider encouraging someone to donate who you know understands the amazing difference that palliative care can make in the lives of children and families when facing a life-threatening or life-limiting diagnosis. I know we can get there!

Thank you again for your support and generosity from all of us at ICPCN, but mostly from the thousands of affected childen of Bangladesh.
