Partnerships in Health Information is a small charity I have supported for a number of years. They work with African libraries to build leadership capacity, support evidence based practice and improve public access to health information.
Last year I spent the morning exchanging knowledge with two Tanzanian librarians who had been hosted by PHI as Commonwealth Professional Fellows for a three month study tour in the UKsee http://tinyurl.com/PHI2014 for more information
It was a great reminder of the valuable work PHI do. I was also prompted by a tweet about #buyalibrary from a couple of years back. I hope people will be as keen to #buildalibrarian
I have registered to run in the Hoohaah run on the 21st of June. There is 10k to cover with a bit more by way of gradient than I am used to so it should be reasonably hard work.
If you can give a little something that would be great. Even better would be if you could give a little something and share what I am trying to do. Or just share!
Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. JustGiving do take a small amount but for a small charity like PHI the reduction in their input makes this more than worthwhile.
