Mission

World Child Cancer improves curative treatment and palliative care for children with cancer in low and middle income countries. Our vision is to see a world where every child with cancer has access to the best possible treatment. We achieve this by facilitating and funding international partnerships linking medics, hospitals and parent support groups between resource-rich and resource-poor countries to transfer specialist skills and expertise. Each project receives support for five years.
