What does the Charity do?
Thank-You! We've had a number of generous donations and they continue to pour in. I thought you'd like to know what we do with the money.
The charity's aims are to:
- increase awareness amongst the public and medical professionals, so that people don't suffer, and get/stay healthy
- improve diagnosis, so that people who have B12 deficiency are identified and treated, and people who have conditions unrelated to B12 deficiency are quickly excluded and treated for whatever they do have
- improve treatment, so that people who need frequent injections get them - with the aim of optimising health
All of the time and effort to do this, to run the clinics, and to keep the web site up to date, is given freely. Hosting for the web site is donated by the author.
Our expenses consist of: buying and providing B12 to people who are unable to obtain it from any other source. We don't send it out freely - in UK most people are able to obtain B12 from their own GP if they need it, and in other countries most people can obtain it for themselves. None-the-less, the sheer number of people who suffer from B12 deficiency is so big that there are a few hundred who simply cannot get it themselves and we will do our best to help. This is what nearly all of the donations are spent on.
