A message from Lynn Woo about The Karen Woo Foundation (KWF)
Thank you for considering applying to join our small board of trustees to take a lead on fundraising. Our charity was set up as a grant making foundation in honour of my daughter, Dr Karen Woo, after she was killed while on a medical aid mission in Afghanistan in August 2010. The team she was part of had taken a week to trek to the remote province of Nuristan where over the course of 8 days they treated over 1,500 people for medical problems. Some of those seeking medical assistance had walked for 3-4 days to the village of Parun, where Karen’s group had based itself, upon hearing that medics had arrived in the area. This is indicative of the complete lack of basic healthcare resources in much of rural Afghanistan and this fundamental requirement was one of the driving factors for Karen. She strived to increase access to medical care for those in the country who need it most.
