During its second Leadership Conference, held on 9-12 June in Brussels,  the European Haemophilia Consortium (EHC) announced the creation of a fund to support ad hoc activities for its National Member Organisations (NMOs).

The fund, which will consist of €50,000 annually, will be put at the disposal of EHC members to either initiate a required project/programme, or to allow an already-initiated project/programme to continue or to support any other activity as deemed appropriate by the EHC and the NMO. This fund is not designed to cover operational costs such as office rents or NMO employees salaries.

The grant should support projects that will benefit NMO members and directly support the improvement of the quality of life of people living with a rare bleeding disorder in their country. Furthermore, activities must also be in line with the EHC overarching missions and objectives.

The EHC hopes that this fund will benefit as many NMOs as possible and therefore asks its members to only apply for only what they need.

NMOs that are interested in applying for an activity grant should contact Amanda Bok, EHC CEO.
