We want to express our heartfelt gratitude for your wonderful support that enables us to provide FREE seamless cancer care. Over the last 31 years, we have helped raise awareness on the importance of detecting cancer early to save lives. We have offered psychosocial support for anyone touched by cancer and celebrate people surviving it. One of the things that inspires me the most is the way Cancer Fund brings so many amazing people together from all walks of life including survivors and their families, social workers, counsellors, nurses, doctors, art therapists, research teams, corporations, schools and donors and more. In the last year, we were privileged to serve more than 4,200 new clients with our care services. Thanks to our professional team of social workers, dietitians, oncology nurses, clinical psychologists and counsellors and art therapists. We have provided 1,613 programmes for 27,581 people touched by cancer.
Our Rainbow Club Support Children 1,045 Attendances at our Rainbow Club Activities Our Rainbow Club programme offers caring support to children who have a parent or relative who has been diagnosed or in bereavement due to cancer. These programmes address the needs of children and helps them to release their negative emotions. Last year, 52 programmes were offered to 864 users (parents and children) over 76 sessions.
It has been a very difficult fundraising environment this past year and I want to say a big thank you to our supporters who help sustain our free care services. I sincerely thank all our donors, for giving the gift of hope and ensuring no one faces cancer alone.
