Cairdeas (pronounced ‘cardis’) is a Gaelic word meaning world-wide friendship and fellowship.

We are a Scottish-based charity which works in partnership with national and international individuals and organisations using a health systems approach to promote and faciliate the provision of high quality palliative care in resource limited settings. We work to promote and facilitate access to palliative care for those in the greatest need in various developing countries regardless of background. We work to achieve this through education, advocacy, mentorship and research. 

Christmas appeal:

1. £10 pays for a pack of vital supplies for refugees from South Sudan living in the refugee camps in Northern Uganda, which are being distributed by Lugogo and Cairdeas ‘Sanyu’ volunteers. 2. £25 pays for a piglet to support the pig breeding income generating project through our partner PcERC in Kampala, Uganda. 3. £100 supports the training and mentorship of a palliative care health professional in India in leadership skills through our partner Pallium India.
