APCA UK raises funds for APCA's life-changing work across Africa, through grants from trusts and charities and sponsorship from individual supporters. We work to help fund particular APCA projects - improving a hospice, for example, or training nurses. And we help support key programmes, such as advocacy to get palliative care into Africa countries' national health plans.
We also promote awareness of the urgent need for palliative care in Africa. Our individual supporters raise funds through sponsored events, from running to dinner parties, or make generous donations - often having benefitted from palliative care within their own families. Their support proves that each of us can make a real difference in the lives of people who live far away.
APCA UK is governed by a team of Trustees. All Trustess are volunteers and more information can be found about them here.
It's hard to imagine going through cancer, or an AIDS-related illness such as TB, or organ failure, without any medication or support for your family. We don't want anyone to suffer in this way. Palliative care, as practised by well-trained staff, can ensure that no one does.
You can help - through raising funds, donating or by giving your time as a Trustee. If you'd like to support our work, click here to donate via Virgin Money Giving or via PayPal, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your suggestions.
APCA UK also provides the facility for you to pay for your APCA membership or conference fees through the APCA UK PayPal account.
