Help Poor Children with Cancer in Ghana

Summary

This project will increase access to specialized care for 600 poor children with cancer in Ghana. This will be achieved by providing accommodation, food, daily transport to hospital and counselling services to the most vulnerable children who have traveled far away from their homes with their care givers to seek treatment.

Challenge

Poor children with cancer from far away rural districts travel to the city for care. The costs of accommodation, food, travel to hospital etc are a barrier to receiving the services and over 50% of the children default on treatment and return to the villages before completing treatment. This results in unnecessary death of the children from curable cancers.

Solution

The project will provide a "home away from home" for the poorest children and their caretakers. The hostel will provide accommodation, three nutritious meals per day, daily transport from the hostel to the cancer Hospital, counseling, play and music therapy. This will remove the burden of care from the families and it will enable them to focus on getting treatment and getting better.

Long-Term Impact

The project will enable 600 children with cancer to complete their treatment and have a good chance of getting cured from cancer every year.
