2016 was an impact filled year for Two Worlds Cancer Collaboration. And it’s you, our donors, that have made that possible.
Read more in our 2016 Reportage to Donors.
Our leader Dr. Simon Sutcliffe remarks on the year:
"Thanks to you, our program in India now has 30 rural communities supported through palliative care outreach. And the Life at Your Doorstep home care program now has 4 vans supported by a 24-hour, hot line.
Your support has made possible, Two Worlds Cancer’s collaboration with the Nepalese Association for Palliative Care and other stakeholders to present a National Palliative Care Program that has been approved by the Nepali government. As donors, your support reaches the community level.
In Nepal, the Makwanpur Project – a program to develop sustainable, affordable and accessible palliative care in rural communities – has progressed with community awareness programs, continued care for patients and families, research on attitudes and perceptions towards palliative care, and a survey of patients with chronic disease requiring palliative care. But as donors, your generosity has the greatest impact at an individual level.
In India, Pooja, a 12-year-old girl referred to hospice following progression of acute leukemia, asked for a purple bicycle. To meet the wishes of a dying child, a second-hand bicycle was purchased. Pooja passed away two days later with the purple bicycle at her bed-side. Your donations in 2016 supported new initiatives and sustained commitments to our partners and to patients like Pooja.”
It is your continued commitment as that helps us provide sound, reliable and credible collaboration. Thank you for that commitment and generosity!
