FOOD FOR GOOD FOR CANCER PATIENTS IN KENYA- PROJECT 51672

PROJECT REPORT-MARCH 2023 TO JULY 2023.

Africa Cancer Foundation (ACF) is a charitable Trust, launched on July 12, 2011 in Nairobi, Kenya to create awareness on cancer, spearhead cancer prevention and provide holistic solutions for cancer patients.

In April 2021, ACF raised funds on GlobalGiving for the Food for Good project. The project aimed at addressing the nutritional needs of 300 cancer patients and their families by setting up vegetable cone gardens for them to enhance food security and better nutrition during their treatment journey.

ACF has to-date raised over $21,828 from 282 donors out of a target of $50, 000.

 

ACHIEVEMENTS

Since the last report in March 2023 and the beginning of the rainy season in Kenya, ACF managed to set up 37 new cone gardens in Nyandarua, Kisumu and Siaya counties.

The total number of cone garden sets up from June 2021 to June 30, 2023 is 187.

Each cone garden has a variety of vegetables namely; kale, spinach, Africa night shade, beetroot, coriander and spring onions. 

The beneficiaries of the cone gardens were drawn from treatment facilities and patient based organisations. 

 

TESTIMONIALS 

“We want to thank Africa Cancer Foundation for giving us this cone garden, it's almost three years since we got the cone garden but it's still intact till to date. We are so grateful because our patients who we are accommodating have enough fresh vegetables to eat.” Millicent of Symbol of Hope Warriors, Kariobangi, Nairobi County.

 The cone garden was set up on ACF’s 10th Anniversary in July 2021.

“Thank you so much for the good work you are doing. The cone has been very helpful. We are able to plant various vegetables and continue to replant them. We are so grateful to have it.” Nelly Wanjiku, Ngecha, Kiambu County.

 

IMPACT

The beneficiaries of the cone gardens continue to enjoy fresh, organic vegetables for better nourishment as their undergo treatment. Following a farming workshop in 2022, most patients have ventured in kitchen gardening which provides more food to them and their families and some sell their extra produce to raise money for treatment and other needs.

The cone gardens have been a source of enjoyment and recreation for the cancer patients and their families. Many of the beneficiaries termed tending to their cone gardens as rewarding and that it offered a sense of joy and accomplishment.

 

Thank you for your support towards the ‘Food for Good’ project.
