Programs

Kidzcan Children's Cancer Relief is a registered Private Voluntary Organization (PVO 04/2009), dedicated to increasing the survival rate of children with cancer in a loving and caring environment. Kidzcan is concentrating efforts on improving effective treatment for children with cancer and complimenting that with early detection workshops. In addition to providing much needed care and counseling for patients and their families, Kidzcan is committed to improving survival rates through the following: Sourcing internationally and purchasing unavailable chemotherapy and associated medications ; Providing chemotherapy medications to children in Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals (A4 Special, C3 A6 SKH), Harare Hospital and Mpilo Central Hospital. Funding diagnostic imaging and testing for accurate and expedient results: Providing transport reimbursement and supplemental feeding support to patients in particular need; Implementing a national awareness and sensitization campaign to achieve early detection; Implementing a trained volunteer program to engage in structured play with the children restricted to the hospital. Kidzcan collaborates with the Ministry of Health and Child Care (Parirenyatwa Government Hospital), which presently houses the only paediatric oncology unit in Zimbabwe. It is here at "Pari" that Kidzcan provides love and care to the children and their families - families who do not have the financial means to pay for medication, for their children suffering with cancer. These patients and families, without the support of Kidzcan, would have no hope of recovery. It is hope that we want to foster and ultimately make a reality. We at Kidzcan believe, that every child deserves the "right to the fight"! We believe that Kids of Zimbabwe Can Survive Cancer!
