Malawi is one of the world's poorest nations, with over half the population living on less than a dollar a day.
Covid-19 has had a devastating impact on Malawi's already fragile health services. It is children and families who are paying the price. And it's even worse if your child has cancer.
At World Child Cancer we are working tirelessly in Malawi and in 10 other resource-poor countries, to get as many children as possible diagnosed and on treatment.. The sooner a child starts treatment, the better their chances of a full recovery.
But we can’t do this alone. With your support, we can make sure that children with cancer around the world, get diagnosed and can continue to access the treatment and support they so desperately need.
None of what we do would be possible without the tireless work of frontline doctors and nurses, who spend every day treating children with cancer and supporting families — often in incredible challenging circumstances.
Dr George Chagaluka is a paediatric oncologist from Malawi and oversees the paediatric oncology unit at World Child Cancer's partner hospital, Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital, Blantyre.
In a country of 18.6 million people, George is the only paediatric oncologist from Malawi.
Cancer survival starts with an early diagnosis. £30 could support services that enable the accurate diagnosis of two children with cancer in Malawi. Support our appeal today.
