I am originally from Eastern Europe and when I saw how IAHPC was supporting nurses and doctors from Russia I decided to donate. I am not a health care professional but I enjoy reading their newsletter and learning about their efforts in many countries of the world.

I read their reports and newsletters and to learn about the extraordinary things they do.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

learning how they help the nurses and physicians in Eastern Europe so that they can attend seminars, sessions and congresses.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Help more health care professionals get the training they need.

I am regularly getting the IAHPC's monthly Newsletter, with reviews, Advice etc which greatly benefits & encourages me, to continue my efforts in reaching out to the Terminally ill patients, counselling, encouraging and praying for them. May the Loving Lord bless this IAHPC's work more & more for the Love of God to be felt by one and all.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

As mentioned earlier, I'm much encouraged by the various efforts taken by this organistion in reaching out to the Terminally ill.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

desire that they send someone True & faithful from their organisation to oversee someone like me or others who are doing this work, selflessly without expecting any Praise or adoration.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Reading the efforts taken by the organisation to spread this good deed.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Have not met

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

accelerate the growth of this lofty ideals

Ways to make it better...

I had been enquired about what I am actually into & helping getting associated with the Local IAHPC unit

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Lack of True Selfless Volunteers who could speed up spreading this good deed to far reaching places.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Love of God is The very essential thing for effective Palliative care

Website and e-mail alerts are very efficient in educating audience about issues of pain care and palliative care. Their special expertise is bringing an international focus to the subject. My understanding and viewpoint has been enhanced and broadened due to their efforts.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I am an intractable pain patient with full body CRPS and other health issues. As I age, I know there will be complications with my end of life pain care. I want to be as educated and empowered as possible, and in touch with those who could help me.
