Events and Activities
Events and activities relating to the Barbados Hospice and Palliative Care initiative were initially the domain of the Barbados Cancer Association USA (BACA), Inc. which conceptualized and nurtured the idea of a stand-alone hospice for Barbados.
BACA organized the first hospice fundraiser in 2011 and has sought to publicize the hospice initiative in Barbados through participation in two Barbados Network Consultations. BACA continues to support the project, but in May 2016 ceded major fundraising activities for the hospice initiative to the Barbados Diaspora Collaborative USA, Inc., which was established in 2014 as a tax-exempt US charity to seek funding for projects in Barbados.
BDC USA sponsors fundraising events periodically and welcomes donations of any size throughout the year.
