New partnership with the Makerere Palliative Care Unit

In August 2012 Uganda Cancer Trust UK entered a partnership with the Makerere Palliative Care Unit to expand their volunteer programme.

The volunteers help patients access information about cancer and getting treatment, as well as holistic palliative care (psychological, social, spiritual and physical) and are already making a big difference.

Longer term aims of the joint project are to develop further information tools and establish a mobile booth and support centre. The more money we can raise the more we can extend this project and provide a permanent support centre where patients and family can meet, have a place to rest, share stories, and get information.

We will post more information and stories from the project here as it progresses.
