Who are the Friends?

The Friends of the Mycetoma Research Center are people who wish to support the work of this internationally renowned specialist center. The Friends make their voluntary contribution in a variety of ways, with particular emphasis on the patients’ welfare. They devote their time mainly to promoting social activities and raising funds which are used to improve the comfort and well-being of patients.

The Friends serving on the Committee are elected as Trustees of the Charity by the members. The Committee meets each month to discuss all issues raised by the Friends, consider requests and organise future activities.

What Do We Do?

The Friends raised funds to support the treatment of patients and contacted several overseas donors to support the various activities of the center. They organise many activities throughout the year and the funds raised are used to provide extra amenities and equipment for the care of patients in the centre.
