News and Events

On this page we'll have news about the work of World Medicine, where we can showcase acupuncture in action, and also our supporters in action, helping us achieve our goal of providing acupuncture to people around the world suffering the effects of trauma, disaster and poverty.

Fundraising 2019

Kiltwalks are a wonderful way to help World Medicine with fundraising. Sponsored by the Sir Tom Hunter Foundation,100% all donations made go to World Medicine. But in addition, the Foundation also adds 40% to whatever is raised.

So for every £10 given to one of our kilt walkers we actually receive £14. It's a great incentive to take part in the walks - which are not easy! But also a great incentive to give!

Barbara, Catherine and Emma took part in the Edinburgh kiltwalk, on September 15th, and you can see a short video of their adventures here!

We have our own dedicated World Medicine Sponsorship Page which is available here - please support our fundraising for this year's clinic in Chaparda by making a donation to support Barbara, Catherine and Emma, and watch it increase by 40%!

Other Fundraising News

2019 was an active year for World Medicine fundraising volunteers. On June 6th, Barbara, Sally, Emma and Dave ( Barbara’s husband) took on the Aberdeen Kiltwalk Challenge and raised collectively over £1300. With the 40% added by the Tom Hunter Foundation this will mean a total of around £1800.

We are yet again overwhelmed by the support of our families, friends, patients and well wishers. Without it our projects would not thrive and so we thank everyone +-with the deepest of gratitude for enabling our work to continue.

July 6th saw Jude and Emma grapple with the Great Glencoe Challenge, a 26 mile trek through the beautiful highlands of Scotland. You may enjoy our short video of the day.

If you feel inspired by our efforts we would be delighted if you were to make a small donation through World Medicine’s online charitable giving link.
