Researching stories about the life with Valerie Taylor
Do you have any interesting stories about Valerie and her life’s work in Bangladesh? Exploratory work is underway to see how a record might be complied and to identify sources of material. Please Contact us if you do. The project is self-funding (no VTT funds will be used) so suggestions about possible sources of sponsorship would be very helpful.
A Message from the Chairman
Another year gone by and more good news to celebrate. First, our congratulations to Valerie on the award of an Honorary Doctorate from York St John University. In Bangladesh, the opening of the new CRP- run physiotherapy out-patient facility in Chittagong means that another piece of Valerie’s vision for the future is in place. The core work of CRP continues. A minimum of 50% of poor Spinal Cord Injury patients
are treated free of charge and over 27,000 out-patients receive treatment each year.
Our financial support of around £120,000 a year remains a significant amount for CRP – about 8% of its annual income. Also the many UK volunteers who go to CRP each year carry out important roles, not just as health professionals, but in other key areas such as management and administration. Do YOU have time and a skill to offer as a volunteer? Can we raise even more money this coming year? If you are
inspired by Valerie’s work in Bangladesh, please share that inspiration with others and so help to increase our support for Valerie’s work in Bangladesh.
