Why should I leave a gift to IHP in my Will?

By leaving a bequest to International Health Partners you can leave a lasting mark on the lives of women, men and children in need and on access to medicines worldwide.

Your legacy will mean children in their early years of life will have access to the healthcare they need during this critical period in their development.  A lack of treatment during this window can lead to chronic ill health and preventable disabilities that last a lifetime.  A healthy child is also able to attend school regularly and get the education they need to break free of the cycle of poverty, malnutrition and ill-health. 

With your help, adults will also be able to access treatment that enables them to work or be active parents or grandparents.  By facilitating an operation by providing the necessary medical supplies, your support could have a life-changing impact.

Relieving the financial strain of medical costs on families can also help prevent the distress sale of key assets such as a cow, or the damaging decision to pull a child out of school, both of which can leave families trapped in a cycle of intergenerational poverty.  IHP medicines are free at the point of use.

The money saved by NGOs on purchasing medicines means they have more resources to invest in their wider work to strengthen health care systems, for example, by training medical staff and undertaking advocacy to bring about improvements in government health provision.

 

Multiply the impact of your bequest

A bequest of £10,000 would be enough to get around £100,000 worth of medicines to people in need, providing in the region of 25,000 treatments.  For some of those helped the impact will be life-saving or life-changing.

Where else could your support have such a big impact?
