Palliatives Without Borders and Tecnun sign an agreement partnership agreement
The goal is to promote the university volunteer activities and make visible the resources offered by this health NGOD.
The health NGO Palliatives Without Borders and Tecnun, School of Engineering of the University of Navarra in Sebastian, have signed a collaboration agreement agreement in order to enhance the volunteer activities of students and professionals of the center.
Specifically, engineering students from Tecnun, under the coordination of several teachers, will modify the database of the PSF website to update the resources partner health resources that the entity offers in the Basque Country and make them more accessible. Likewise, students and teachers will have the possibility of offering support services to chronically ill people.
"As a university we have the responsibility to lend a hand, and the agreement aims to take a further step in this direction," says Raúl Antón, Director of Tecnun. "The initial idea is that the university community puts its technical knowledge at the service of social entities, in this case, improving the website and facilitating access to the resources that Palliatives without Borders offers to society," explains Antón. "All of this enhances the university experience and complements its human formation."
For his part, Wilson Astudillo, President of Palliatives Without Borders, thanks Tecnun for "their important support in facilitating the students' involvement as volunteers, something that will undoubtedly increase their social sensitivity". "We are very happy that the students are going to help us improve the presentation and possibilities of our website, so that it will be easier to know what palliative care offers and how it alleviates the suffering of the chronically ill and their families.
