NGO to raise funds for children suffering from cancer in a 10k 4 Cancer campaign
Bless A Child Foundation has today announced its 10k 4 Cancer campaign in its continued effort to provide palliative care to the children at its Akiba Home suffering from Cancer.
Akiba home, opened in Kampala in March 2010 & later in Gulu in 2015, is a clean, hygienic environment where the children and their parents/caregivers are given shelter, meals, physical care, play therapy and recreational facilities as the children undergo cancer treatment.
During a visit to the home, Brian Walusimbi the Bless a Child founder explained that 10k 4 Cancer is a campaign to show people that if come together, we can achieve more as a community.
Funds raised will benefit the child directly and their families, but also those facilitating the treatment of the most serious illnesses, ie. doctors, nurses, surgeons, etc. Our mission as a dedicated group is to improve the welfare and quality care for children with cancer.
Bless A Child Foundation provides direct practical help to children with cancer, from diagnosis onwards, recognizing the inevitable disruption to family life when a child faces vigorous and often lengthy treatment. This is why the Foundation is calling upon the public to contribute to this cause to save young, innocent lives.
