Meet our generous funders, pro bono contributors, delivery partners, and other individuals without whom we would be unable to help the beneficiaries we have committed to serving: Africans impacted by Parkinson's disease. We believe that, by working together, we can significantly raise the levels of awareness and understanding of Parkinson's across Africa, reduce misconceptions and corresponding stigma surrounding the disease, and transform the Parkinson's disease landscape across Africa. We are extremely grateful for all the support.
Janet Owens Legacy Fund
Janet Owens (1930-2016) worked as a doctor across four continents, including four African countries. She loved Africa, where she had also spent her early years. Living with Parkinson’s for the last decade of her life, she wanted to support Parkinson’s research and services after her death.

Laura Russell Photography
The "Exquisite Warriors" project is an artist book project by Laura Russell, a photographer and bookbinder for nearly 25 years, that resulted in a limited-edition handmade book featuring mix-and-match structures of 26 women with Parkinson's disease (each representing one letter of the alphabet), where each participant used their assigned letter to convey something about Parkinson's disease symptoms. The book also featured two other threads: facts about women and PD, and each woman’s biggest fear relating to Parkinson's disease. The book's gross proceeds were donated to Parkinson's Africa to fund one of our projects, "Women with Parkinson's Disease." This is a project aimed at empowering women with Parkinson's disease and assisting them in gaining vital skills that will allow them to sustain themselves in the long run.
