Friends of Leukaemia Patients Cork
An Independent Registered Charity -Voluntary Group Established 1985.
Since then we have provided help to leukaemia patients and their carers.
A Not for Profit Organization governed by a board of Directors who are responsible for programme development standards and operations we observes all the appropriate governance protocols and fully transparent with audited accounts.
We are totally voluntary ,there is no wages paid to anyone in our organisation. With no wage or commission given to anyone wishing to raise funds therefore we are not burdened with overheads.
One hundred per cent of donations made to our charity goes directly into providing much needed support and practical help to leukaemia patients and their carers from the Munster area.
Providing a vital service for patients under going a bone marrow transplant in St James Hospital Dublin.
Home -From- Home accommodation within a walking distance of the hospital made available free of charge to patients and their carers who have limited financial resources.
Patients have told us the accommodation was a tremendous help to them at what can be a very difficult time a place away from the hospital to relax with all of the comforts normally taken for granted it enabled them to be with their loved ones during their treatment as they are required to be close to the hospital in case of admission or a consult until they are ready to return home again.
This facility is provided through charitable donation and fundraising initiatives held throughout the year because we don't receive any government or state funding to assist us with our work and we continually need new ideas as we would not be able to continue to do so without the help of the public.
Our Patrons Ger Power and Pascal Scott are invaluable to our organisation.
We are truly grateful to everyone that have helped us over the years .
