Congratulations to CAHSAPI!
CLAN would like to extend our sincerest congratulations to CAHSAPI - the CAH (Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia) community in the Philippines. Established in 2005, the Club held its latest meeting at the Philippines General Hospital (PGH) in December 2010. The event marked the community's 5th birthday and was the 7th Lay Forum of the community!
In the last 5 years the families will have seen much change for the better - and yet, without reliable access to affordable local supplies of the essential medicines needed to keep the children in the community alive, there is still great work to be done.
Sincerest thanks must go to the wonderful health professionals at PGH who have helped CAHSAPI at every step of the way. Thank-you also to old partners (especially Alphapharm Australia) and new friends who are all integral to supporting this community as it grows and develops.
Below are messages sent from CAH Community members in Australia and New Zealand (also posted on the CAHSAPI Community Noticeboard)... CAHSAPI you are much loved by your neighbours overseas!
Dear friends in the Filipino CAH Club,
To all CAHSAPI members and supporters
Our warm regards,
Director of CAHNZ
On behalf of the CAHNZ Trust and Support Group Members of New Zealand
