The British Palawan Trust
BRITISH PALAWAN TRUST IMPORTANT
It is with
deep regret that I must announce that the British Palawan Trust will
close down at the end of March 2023.
I have run the charity since 1990 and it has been a pleasure and
an honour. The problem is
that I am not getting any younger and we have failed to find a younger
person to take over.
The plan is
to send all our reserves to Bahatala which is the clinic in Puerto
Princesa. The work of the
clinic will continue for a long time we hope, under the leadership of
Mrs. Cecile Socrates. As you
know the clinic provides rehabilitation to a wide range of people with a
variety of conditions. The
clinic is the only one treating Club Foot using the Ponseti method.
The Workshop is the only supplier of artificial limbs and braces
as well as aids to persons with disability.
that we have been unable to find a simple way for you to donate to
Bahatala and benefit from Gift Aid.
I will keep the BPT bank accounts open for a month or two in case
of late donations, although they will not qualify for Gift Aid.
Those who wish to continue supporting the work of
Bahatala can transfer money directly.
