"I would say that religious organizations should not only contribute by offering and example of compassionate and considerate care but should also offer transcendent illumination, an eternal perspective capable of giving meaning to suffering and the loss of a child."


I will do all within my power so that every child with a life limiting or a life-threatening illness has access to paediatric palliative care.

Paediatric Palliative Care is the best approach for all children and young people suffering from a life-threatening and/or life-limiting disease.

Collectively, we have the opportunity and awareness to advocate for child-specific palliative care and for its provision as an integral part of the health care system of every country and relieve the suffering of so many more vulnerable children with life-threatening and life-limiting illness.
