Health and Hope is delighted to announce that His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales has agreed to become its Patron.
The announcement comes after a meeting at the end of 2014 between HRH, The Prince of Wales, and Dr. Sasa, the visionary founder of Health and Hope (in Burma), himself from one of the villages but trained as a medical doctor. Speaking about the support from HRH, Dr. Sasa said “we are so very moved, humbled and overjoyed that The Prince of Wales would take an interest in our work. It is hard to explain how much this support will encourage and bring hope to our people that someone so important from so far away cares about them.”
Dr. Andrew Murray, Chair of Health and Hope (in the UK) said “it is a huge honour to have The Prince of Wales as our Patron. We are very grateful for his support and believe that it will be of great assistance, including raising the profile of the huge need in these remote villages and the transformational work being led by Dr Sasa's Health and Hope team. Dr Sasa returned to Chin State incredibly excited at being able to tell his people that although others might have neglected them, The Prince of Wales is concerned about them and wants to help support them.”
