Health

Another one of our goals is to help individuals struggling with ill health.

Illness puts an incredible strain on financial resources especially since various ongoing medical expenses are usually involved. When a family is dealing with illness, the last thing we want is for them to worry about how to finance important appointments, carer’s and/or transportation. When people are already in a vulnerable state, any additional stressor can be detrimental to their health and impede recovery. Lending Hope Ltd. intends to step in to share the burden and help out financially, emotionally and physically as necessitated by each individual situation. Our activities will include:

  • Subsidising or funding treatment that is not available under the NHS, or providing financial assistance in the form of a long-term loan. Although most medical needs are managed via the NHS, some specialised treatment and supplementary therapies are not. Our Trustees will look into each situation carefully and come to a decision on a case by case basis.
  • Transportation to and from appointments is often problematic, particularly when the patient is weak or struggling with limited mobility and public transport is therefore not on option. In these cases we intend to subsidise, or fund, car fare so that the patient can get to appointments in a hassle-free manner.
  • Source, and on occasion fund, carer’s for ill adults and children. When an individual is medically challenged there is a lot of strain and responsibility on family members. Relieving this strain, via occasional outside help, is enormously beneficial for all involved and helps to rejuvenate the primary carer so that they can continue to provide essential support.
