About Campaign

The APHN Covid-19 Care Packages were designed as a morale booster for palliative care workers in the Asia Pacific region working at the frontline during this Covid-19 pandemic.

Some are battling to provide medical care, medicines and psychosocial support to very sick patients at home despite city lockdowns. Others are working in hospitals or are being transferred to the frontline to take care of Covid-19 patients with limited protective equipment and masks. These heroes put their lives at risk everyday, and we know, when the situation is over, not all of them will be around.

The care package will contain items such as: surgical masks, snacks, vitamins, with notes of encouragement to show our support for their selfless sacrifice during this period. (Items per package may vary depending on the need of the region)

ALL donations received will go towards purchasing items for the care package. If you wish to donate items directly, please feel free to contact us via email at [email protected]

About the Charity

The Asia Pacific Hospice Palliative Care Network (APHN) is the regional umbrella body dedicated to promoting hospice and palliative care in Asia and the Pacific.

Our purpose is to empower and support organisations and individuals committed to alleviating suffering from life-threatening illness.

We promote education and skills development, enhance awareness and communication, and foster research and collaboration. We encourage established programmes to assist less experienced and more isolated colleagues.
