Original Model Compassion Clubs do NOT provide medication, they provide education, they allow members of the group to exchange experience with strains for particular symptoms/grow tips and fellowship among those with a shared history of illness- much like a cancer or a crohn’s support group. But one of the most important features of a Compassion Club is local political action to protect the rights of patients in a particular community.
