It’s no secret that playing Claire is rigorous, demanding and very time consuming. It’s so wonderful that Cait finds the time and energy to be the patron of this important organization- this month’s OutlanderBTS spotlight on giving is on her charity: World Child Cancer. She recently visited Gana to learn more and help garner resources to support WCC.

Day 1 of my trip to Ghana accompanied by our Patron Caitriona Balfe and Rachel Brown, our Communications and Fundraising executive. We were visiting Korle Bu hospital in central Accra. This was Caitriona’s first trip to one of our projects since she became one of our Patrons. Although we had briefed Caitriona that a children’s cancer ward is not an easy place to be and will be full of very sick children some of whom may be dying, it is never certain how people will react when faced with the reality. Caitriona coped well with the experience though, and her natural warmth and empathy came across quickly as she sat on the beds with the children and soon had them, and their mothers, laughing and joking. In no time she knew everybody’s name and was familiar with all the different types of cancer present.
