To our esteemed donors,
We are excited to share with you highlights of what we have been up to this year. As one of our valued donor, partner and friend, we cannot thank you enough in helping us in our mission towards giving hope, help and life to children and adults with cancer in Kenya. Thank you for being our champion and we hope you have also had a champion year!
2019 has been a year of partnerships and campaigns. We continue to raise funds and create awareness about cancer through our white water rafting challenge in June and our "Kenya's Biggest Coffee Mornings". Please check out our new websites for the two events here and here.
We have been touched by the number of corporates and individuals who have gone the extra mile to ensure our programs are sustainable. A special thanks to Rachael Gitonga's "Miles4Kshs" campaign which raised funds through a series of runs, the climax being the Berlin Marathon in September.
We continue to offer care and support to patients in Uasin Gishu county at our centre in Eldoret. We are thankful to our volunteers, the medical team at Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital and the AMPATH team who we work closely with. This year we also partnered with "A Fresh Chapter" in their Eldoret Odyssey.
We have also shared in this update moving testimonies from some beneficiaries of the Faraja Medical Support Fund. We are thankful to all our donors, friends and supporters, who have stood with us since the fund was launched on 12th October 2016. Thanks to your support, we can give patients and caregivers help that they need; at diagnosis, during treatment and beyond. Please read more here.
Our crafts for cure program at Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) has also received a lot of support. We are thankful to companies and individuals who have come together to support our program. Because of your generous and continuous support, we now offer lunch to patients undergoing chemotherapy at KNH every Friday and will soon start a library for the teens at level 8c.
As part of our accountability strategy, our accounts are audited courtesy of RSM East Africa and are posted online. Please view our 2019 annual report here
We have new trustees joining us and we are excited to introduce them on our website. We would also like to thank Dr. Manu Chandaria for 9 years of dedicated service. He retired this year from our board earlier this year.
Finally, as we begin the holiday season, the Trustees, Staff and the rest of the team at Faraja Cancer Support Trust want to extend their heartfelt gratitude to everyone who shared their incredible generosity with us by giving us their time, finances and participating in our programmes and events. Your support continues to make a huge difference in the lives of cancer patients and caregivers who access our services. We cannot do what we do without you.
On behalf of everyone we serve – THANK YOU!
Best Regards and Warm Wishes,
Shaira Adamali- Founding Trustee
