The McClay Foundation is involved in a number of local and international initiatives to advance health and wellbeing.
The following project is supporting palliative care through the development of a Centre of Excellence in Nepal.
“There are currently only 2 designated beds for 1.4 million people in Nepal. With the Foundation’s support, we have the opportunity to bring palliative care to 24,000 people for the first time”
In October 2016, The McClay Foundation was able to support EMMS International in providing the salary and training of the first ever specialist palliative care nurse, as well as funding a needs assessment of palliative care in Nepal.
