Cancer Care for Children in The Philippines update

Northern Mindanao Medical Centre
Northern Mindanao Medical Centre

Thank you so much for your kind support to World Child Cancer’s project in the Philippines. Mindanao Island, where we are delivering our work, has a population of 27 million and is the second largest island in the Philippines. Here we are working to improve the diagnosis, access to treatment and quality of care for children with cancer. This year has proven to be increasingly complex, due to the outbreak of COVID-19. 

There has been a considerable drop in patients coming to Davao City because of the covid travel restrictions and repeated lockdowns. Our Mindanao Paediatric Cancer Care Network was a ray of hope for many of our patients since they provided immediate care and communicated closely with patients.

Travel across the island is extremely time consuming and too expensive for most families; it can involve travelling for days by foot, land and sea, which poses major challenges when a child develops cancer and requires diagnosis and regular treatment.

It is thanks to your support that we can continue to set precedents for the improvement of cancer care on Mindanao and in the Philippines. World Child Cancer will be continuing the programme, spreading the awareness of childhood cancer and aiming to ensure every child receives an accurate diagnosis and the best possible care. Thank you for helping to give children with cancer the gift of growing up!
