"Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile." -Albert Einstein Since 1990, Casa de la Amistad has helped more than 12,700 low-income girls, boys and young people who suffer from cancer in Mexico, by providing a custom-made, comprehensive and free of cost treatment. Help us to keep giving children love, hope and life!

In Mexico, child cancer is the leading cause of disease-related death among the little ones. Worryingly, each year, there are around 5,000 new cases and the survival rate oscillates between 30-60%. This is because there is not enough support as the scenario requires. However, if it were detected, diagnosed and treated on time -and consistently-, child cancer would be mostly curable.


We offer a programme that includes four lines of action: timely detection, early care, proper treatment and treatment fidelity. We cover all basic needs and give resilience tools. In a more specific way, we provide them with medical facilities, professionals, medicines and studies, as well as housing, meals, transportation, clothing, emotional care, educational assistance, workshops, recreational activities and information campaigns (about signs and symptoms).

Long-Term Impact

We sincerely hope, that we can work together and help as many children as possible. Every donation is a wonderful gift and means something special it can be a cozy bed, a delicious plate of food, or even life itself. Thank you, thank you, thank you a million times over!
