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.
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!
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
So far 2019 has been active 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.
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.
