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. 


By #BuildingAWorldThatCares, we enable those with serious health related suffering to make decisions about their care, have their holistic needs met, not be pushed into poverty or have their rights violated and to be treated with dignity and respect regardless of where they live, their age or status. Join our mission, support us where the need is greatest!
