Blog: Did you miss the 2020 Gathering?

2nd September 2020

We held our annual gathering on line this year on the 27th June.  We had over 50 people join us from around the world on line. It was great to be able to hear about the great work Cairdeas is doing and supporting in different places and to hear from some of our partners about their work.  We heard from:

  • Jacqui Mackintosh (deputy chair of the Trustees)
  • Dr Mhoira Leng (Medical Director) about the response to COVID-19
  • Dr Chitra Venkateswaran from the MEHAC Foundation (India) about the work of our India Partnerships
  • Dr Elizabeth Swain and her attendance at the GAZA PalCare Conference
  • Elizabeth Namukwaya, director of the Palliative Care Education and Research Consortium (Kampala)
  • Vicky Opia and Sarah Robinson (former UK Ops Director) about the work in Adjumani (Uganda) of the Peace Hospice
  • Ian Robinson (new UK Ops Director) on how you can support us 

If you missed the gathering we have added videos of the zoom presentations from each of the speakers in the resources section of our website.  You can access them via this link Cairdeas-gathering-2020
