Celebrating 10 years of the Small Grants Programme

Since it was launched in 2009, the Small Grants Programme has awarded over 160 grants to organisations across Africa which are making a real difference to palliative care provision and access for children and adults with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions across the continent.

To mark the tenth anniversary of this programme, we invited all organisations which had previously received a grant to submit a short three-minute film which demonstrates the work they do, the difference the work makes to patients’ lives and the impact it has on their communities.

We are delighted to announce the winners of the Short Film Competition:
