Riding for Life-Changing Palliative Care Work in Africa

Categories: Care, Featured, and People & Places.

Paul Goozee, a GP by profession, is taking part in the Prudential Ride London-Surrey 46 on Sunday 4th August to raise funds for palliative care development in Africa, as he well knows the huge benefit that palliative care offers to people in their hour of need.

He will be cycling along a 46 mile route beginning at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in East London finishing at The Mall. He will be joining thousands of other riders in completing the ride and raising money for charities.

Access to PC for all

The funds raised will be in aid of the African Palliative Care Association through APCA UK. The African Palliative Care Association (APCA) is a pan-African organisation ensuring that palliative care is widely understood, integrated into health systems at all levels and underpinned by evidence in order to reduce pain and suffering across Africa. APCA UK raises funds for APCA’s life-changing work across Africa, through grants from trusts and charities and sponsorship from individual supporters.

APCA UK also promotes awareness of the urgent need for palliative care in Africa, to relieve the pain and suffering of people with life-limiting illnesses i.e the kind of care we’d choose for ourselves and our families.

Cycling for purpose

Paul enjoys cycling and has already ridden through Rwanda raising funds for African Charities and is pleased to be helping raise funds for African Palliative Care.
