Every day, lives are being saved by people trained in PTC techniques – the simple, straightforward way to prevent unnecessary loss of life or limb.
Each of these lifesavers is able to do so because someone donated to fund their place on a PTC course. Every year over 300 PTC courses are held across the world. By supporting us, you will indirectly become a lifesaver. It costs just £20 to fund a place on a PTC course in a developing country.
If you were able to give this amount monthly, every year you could fund 12 places on a course like that shown above. But whatever you give, you can be sure it will help save lives.
The PTCF is a highly efficient body, operating without buildings and with only three part time staff. Its key people are all volunteer doctors who give their time free. Most courses are hosted by the local health institution which donates training rooms and, at key points in the process, helps to meet the travel costs for a team of visiting instructors.
In this way tens of thousands of people have already been trained in more than 70 countries. And of course the really valuable result is that thousands of extremely vulnerable people have received expert care when they suffered severe trauma.
PTCF is the world’s premier trainer in trauma care for health workers in developing countries. Our work is endorsed by WHO, WFSA, COCECSA and the G4Alliance.
