Worldwide poetry day to fundraise for hospices

Howard Lake | 7 May 2003 | News

Simultaneous poetry events around the world on 4 October 2003 will raise awareness and funds for hospices and palliative care services in over 43 countries.

Families, patients, nurses, doctors, poets and musicians will take part in the Hospices in Harmony events at 7.30pm local time, all starting with the reading of a poem, written by an unknown author from Minsk. The poem’s words movingly reflect the dedication and support given by hospice workers.

Kate Meadows, Project Director, Voices for Hospices said: “Hospices in Harmony raises much needed awareness and finance for the hospice movement, which relies very heavily on the voluntary sector for funding and extends its care free of charge to patients and their loved ones. Importantly this UK-led initiative is helping to support palliative care in other countries like Costa Rica, Russia, Uganda and Kenya.”
