#HealthFirst Appeal

£2,086 of £3,000 raised

We believe that everyone, everywhere, deserves access to primary healthcare, especially people who live in the most remote communities in the world. PHASE Worldwide currently supports eight remote health posts in Bajura, Gorkha, Humla and Sindhupalchok. Communities living in these regions are often several days walk away from the nearest road. This can make accessing primary healthcare a real challenge.

Our health posts are manned by experienced nurses who deliver a range of primary healthcare services within their community. Good healthcare provides a foundation upon which we can begin to develop our integrated education and livelihoods programmes.

PHASE staff work alongside local government nurses to run these health posts. We fund medicines, equipment and staff, as well as provide mentoring from UK GPs who take part in our volunteering programme. Where needed, we also fund training from in-country specialists The aim is to improve local government provision to the point where our support is no longer necessary, and the health post will be able to operate independently.

But there is still a lot of work to do. The Health First appeal is trying to take us one step closer to governmentsupported primary healthcare in Nepal. We aim to raise £3,000 over two weeks, which will contribute towards running our remote health posts.  It’s a big fundraising target, so we have set up milestones to help us get there. We will be releasing updates to everyone who has donated, every time a milestone is reached.

By donating to this appeal, you will be supporting primary healthcare in communities where healthcare is absent. You will be helping us lay the foundations for future health, education and livelihoods programmes and grow communities that are empowered to help themselves and their neighbours. In all that we do, health comes first.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows PHASE Worldwide to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to PHASE Worldwide we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like PHASE Worldwide to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that PHASE Worldwide will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When PHASE Worldwide receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
