Addressing the unmet need for palliative care in humanitarian settings
Whether or not lives can be saved palliative care offers possible relief from pain, help with distress such as anxiety, anger, grief, and companionship in the absence of family or other friends.
How PallCHASE began
Joan Marston, Executive Committee member of PallCHASE, talks about the palliative care needs of refugees and displaced persons.
Help Support Palliative Care Patients in Ukraine
The war in Ukraine is a major problem for adults and children receiving or needing palliative care in Ukraine. An estimated 500,000 adults and children in Ukraine are dying or have palliative care needs in Ukraine annually. These seriously ill people, the sickest in our health care system, are stuck in Ukraine or are being moved to palliative care programs in Poland, Romania, and Moldova. Our colleagues in these countries are being overwhelmed and need your help! WHPCA, ICPCN & PallCHASE are raising funds on Global Giving to support palliative care in Ukraine and neighbouring countries. Please consider a donation to this fund.
