Direct Programme Support
It’s possible to save the lives of children with easily treatable cancers using relatively simple and inexpensive drugs and procedures. Alongside the voluntary medical aid provided through twinning partnerships, we fund essential medicines and supportive services which would otherwise not be available. These include chemotherapy supplies, nutritional supplements, transport costs, community awareness initiatives, medical equipment and essential staff roles.
Key to our long-term strategy is working hard with our partners to raise the profile of children's cancer and advocate for governments to give more priority to childhood cancer. Part of this work involved advocating for a new World Health Organisational General Assembly Resolution to highlight the urgency of the issue.
