Since JGD UK established itself as a charity, the positive interest that we have received from affected families, patient-groups, medical and community professionals has been incredible.
Feedback has confirmed that a co-ordinated UK effort to address the needs of people affected by and at risk of Jewish genetic disorders is both very much needed and well overdue.
Our planned educational, referral, and research activities have the potential to make a real and significant impact on disorder prevention and management, and we are currently only limited by the resources we have available to implement these activities.
As a newly established charity we very much need support to achieve our objectives.
