Challenge

Our Ugandan team, established in 2008, have developed a palliative care service from the ground up. We have cared for close to 10,000 people, young and old, over the last decade but the need for our specialist care continues to grow. We recognise that without your support we will not be able to meet this mounting challenge and guarantee that all those in need will be able to access high-quality palliative care, something that we strongly believe is a basic human right.

Solution

To tackle the challenge of access to palliative care for all, our expert team of health professionals and volunteers will empower others through education, training & mentorship to help in the delivery of palliative care. Our team will continue to promote & provide individualised support for those in need, addressing not only physical but also emotional, practical & spiritual needs. Through our research and advocacy work we will strive to advance palliative care in Uganda for the benefit of all.

Long-Term Impact

Partnering with our team through the 'Bringing Hope Campaign' will ensure the continued sustainability of the essential care we provide to those living with chronic disease & their families. Your contribution will help to secure the future of palliative care in Uganda by supporting us to train the next generation. One person in our care said "You gave me hope, you gave me pain control, you gave me love.... thank you and please pray for me..... make sure everyone in Uganda has this care."
