about us

 

 

We are a group of volunteers campaigning for better diagnosis and treatment for all those affected by organophosphates used in agriculture. 

We have no membership subscription or outside funding and rely mostly on the collective experience of those who have been bravely battling against the devastating effects of these chemicals for decades.

We hope 2016 will be the year when the farming community comes to realise the impact these insecticides have had on those involved in disease control and that they finally start to get the help and support they urgently need.
