19th World Congress on Disaster & Emergency Medicine
Support a Delegate

The little you give will mean a lot to those you sponsor, and the world to those they care for.

Support a delegate is a conference sponsorship program with a difference.  Support a delegate is a peer-to-peer sponsorship scheme that enables prospective WCDEM2015 delegates from developed regions to financially support their peers from the developing world.  As a part sponsorship, delegates applying for sponsorship are expected to contribute to their attendance by financing their own travel.  In addition, delegates providing support can request the identity of the delegate they helped bring to WCDEM2015 and get involved in their work.  Support a delegate has been operational for nearly five years and in this time has allowed numerous delegates without the financial means to attend high quality acute care conferences on African soil.  Support a delegate is made possible through African Federation for Emergency Medicine.

How can I help?

Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity; it is an act of justice. Like Slavery and Apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings. Sometimes it falls on a generation to be great. You can be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom. (Nelson Mandela, 1918-2013)
