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 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.
This organization helps hospice and palliative care all over the world. They try to help the people who need it the most in under developed countries. please donate to this cause their funds are very well distributed.
