Opening Doors

Clarity Global forms a long-term partnership with Opening Doors, the largest UK charity providing services and activities specifically for LGBTQ+ people over 50. Working on a pro bono basis, the agency will work to raise the profile of Opening Doors and boost awareness of its offerings, which include a buddy system, trained volunteers that prioritize safeguarding, and dedicated groups for people of color, trans members and those affected by dementia. Following global Pride month, Clarity began working with Opening Doors as part of its commitment to provide long-term impactful support to the LGBTQ+ community year round. “We’re already enjoying working with such a committed and passionate team, and are hopeful we can deliver even more for our members as a result,” said Opening Doors head of fundraising and communications Jonathan Buckerfield.

Mercy Ships

APO Group is selected as public relations and communications partner in Africa for global humanitarian organization Mercy Ships. Mercy Ships and APO Group have been working together since January on a media campaign to raise international awareness of the organization and several key events, including an international symposium that focused on developing a roadmap to accelerate access to surgical, obstetric and anesthetic care in Africa by 2030. Founded in 1978, Mercy Ships has deployed hospital ships to countries all over the world, delivering safe, free surgical care and medical training to people who lack access. In late May, the Global Mercy, the world’s largest purpose-built civilian hospital ship, made its maiden voyage to Africa. “APO Group is perfectly placed to help us reach new international audiences, and foster new collaborations and partnerships with organizations all over the continent,” said Mercy Ships VP, global branding and communications Jitze Kramer.
