Now that the funding has ended, appiChar has agreed to help continue the service.Ian Ryder, appiChar’s Managing Director, said: “The Suppliers’ Directory is very important for the charity sector because companies are checked by Lasa before they can be listed. Most directories are paid for by the listed supplier with no form of checking so charities don’t necessarily know if they have a track record in the sector. When we heard funds were needed to keep it running we were more than happy to help.”www.suppliersdirectory.org.uk About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Too often it is these treatable illnesses that stop these people from accessing education and earning a living. By providing access to basic eye health services the UK Aid Match ‘See the Way’ appeal will change lives across Rwanda for generations and this is only possible with the generosity and support of the Great British public.” Overseas disability charity CBM has won its first UK Aid Match for a new campaign that launches this week to help people with sight problems in some of the world’s poorest countries.Between now and 14 May, the UK government will match all public donations to CBM’s See the Way appeal, up to £2 million. The campaign is to raise funds to improve access to sight-saving surgery, glasses and support. Public donations will support CBM’s work preventing blindness and transforming lives with match funding from the government to go towards improving access to sight-saving eye health services in Rwanda.This includes:improving access to sight-restoring cataract surgery and treatment for blinding conditions like glaucomareaching people at risk of blindness in remote areas and helping them access treatment before it is too lateensuring people with low-vision can access glasses and support, so they can go to school, earn a living and be active in their communitiestraining local staff, equipping hospitals and strengthening eye health systems to ensure the maximum long-term and sustainable benefitKirsty Smith, Chief Executive for CBM UK, said: “It’s shocking to think that men, women and children are losing their sight just because they are poor. But for many people in countries like Rwanda, treatment for blinding conditions like cataracts is out of reach. This appeal will help change that, helping people with sight problems access the treatment and support they need. And thanks to the UK Aid Match scheme, every pound donated between now and 14 May will be doubled by the UK government. So a donation of £12 will become £24, enough to restore sight to someone who is blind because of cataracts.” Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis11 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

The organisation also pointed out that censorship is outlawed by article 4 of the 1996 press law.Al-Adab’s November issue contained reports and personal accounts about censorship of the press, cinema and art, and included contributions by prominent novelists such as Sonallah Ibrahim and Edouard Kharrat. It also included an article by academic Nasr Hamed Abou Zeid, who was declared an “apostate” by the Egyptian supreme court in 1995 and who now lives in exile in Europe.In a press release, Al-Adab’s editors said, “We condemn this new violation of press freedom and the dignity of intellectuals, and we call on all intellectuals in the Arab world to protest against repression.” RSF_en Follow the news on Egypt EgyptMiddle East – North Africa News Help by sharing this information February 1, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts Organisation News Less press freedom than ever in Egypt, 10 years after revolution January 22, 2021 Find out more

Brian ArthurUNIVERSITY Hospital Limerick (UHL) is marking International Clinical Trials Day 2018 with an information event for members of the public and for healthcare professionals on the importance of cancer trials this Thursday, May 17.UHL is one of 16 hospital-based cancer trials centres in Ireland and is the only one in the MidWest region.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Members of the public are encouraged to visit an information stand at the Canteen in UHL on the day, from 9am to 2pm. The event is one of a number happening in cancer centres around the country in the coming days in partnership with Cancer Trials Ireland, which co-ordinates hundreds of cancer trials around Ireland every year. The 2018 International Clinical Trials Day takes place officially this year on May 20.International Clinical Trials Day celebrates the anniversary of the first clinical trial conducted by James Lind in 1747 into the causes of scurvy. The trial took place on board the HMS Salisbury and consisted of just 12 men, grouped into pairs and given a variety of dietary supplements from cider to oranges and lemons.The trial only lasted six days but, within that time, there was a noticeable improvement in the group eating the fruit, providing Lind with the evidence required of the link between citrus fruits and scurvy.Approximately 100 cancer trials are currently recruiting patients in 16 hospitals around Ireland. A further 50 trials are in the data collection and analysis stage. At any one time, there could be in the region of 6,000 patients participating in these cancer trials. Around one in two of all clinical trials in Ireland are cancer trials.At UHL there are currently just over 300 patients taking part in over 30 trials. These include trials for patients with a range of cancers, including lung, breast, multiple myeloma and bladder. It is planned that this will expand within the next year to include trials for bowel cancer and malignant melanoma.One such trial currently underway in UHL is known as the MERU cancer trial, investigating the potential of Rova-T (rovalpituzumab tesirine) to treat small cell lung carcinoma (SCLC) which accounts for 10-15% of lung cancers. This is a large international Phase III trial and will involve 740 patients around the world. (Phase III trials compare the safety and effectiveness of the new treatment against the current standard treatment.)UHL is one of four Irish cancer centres joining 168 others around the world in this international trial. The lead investigator for Ireland is Dr Linda Coate, Consultant Oncologist, University Hospital Limerick, and Head of Cancer Trials Ireland’s lung cancer groupAccording to Dr Coate, the treatments available to date for this type of cancer (SCLC) are limited.“Unlike other cancers, where progress has changed the face of the disease, the treatments available for this type of lung cancer have changed little in the past 30 years and the outcomes remain generally poor.“Small cell lung cancer is very aggressive and although patients may experience an initial response to treatment, it is difficult to treat successfully using currently available treatments.“There is a clear need, therefore, to continue to look for drugs that might provide hope for the future in this space”, Dr Coate said.Maureen O’Grady, Clinical Nurse Manager, Clinical Trials Unit, Cancer Services, UHL, said patients taking part in trials did so not only in the hope of improving their own outcomes and quality of life but also because they recognised the importance of research in helping scientists better understand cancer – to help prevent it, to help detect it and to develop treatments.Ms O’Grady said Herceptin, one of the most widely used chemotherapy drugs for breast cancer patients, was just one drug where clinical trials had involved patients in Limerick.“New and more effective approaches cannot be developed without cancer trials,” said Ms O’Grady.“All cancer treatments used today were once tested through a cancer trial. Cancer trials allow access to new drugs and treatments and help us increase our knowledge on the best way to deliver these treatments. By taking part in a cancer trial patients help to test new ways to detect and treat cancer,” she added.The National Cancer Strategy 2017-2026 acknowledges that cancer trials should be a core activity of cancer centres and recommends that they be fully integrated into cancer care delivery. This will ensure cancer trials are central to the treatment options available to people with cancer.The strategy includes a target to double the number of people with cancer who can access cancer drug trials, from the current 3% to 6% by 2020.For inquiries on Cancer Clinical Trials at UHL, please contact 061 482531 WhatsApp Advertisement Limerick Senator has beef with meat industry
