Challenge

In 2018 in Uganda, 32,617 people were diagnosed with cancer, 6,413 with cervical cancer and 2,318 breast cancer. We only have one (1) cancer hospital in Uganda at the city centre. A number of rural women fail to get resources to go for treatment at that hospital and those who are able to cannot afford accommodation within the hospital and therefore spend nights sleeping at the hospital floors and corridors. This project seeks to offer support to 7,000 women annually reducing the burden.

Solution

Patient Relief Mission will provide transportation to the hospital, accommodation with three (3) meals a day for the patient and their care taker. PRM will also provide psychosocial support for patients, care takers and family members. PRM goes a step further to keep the patients thinking less of what they are going through by involving them in learning new skills like literacy, numeracy, crafts and sustainable gardening (perma culture), farming and sewing.

Long-Term Impact

This project will offer patient relief to over 7,000 women annually while empowering them through income generating programs and new skill sets to ensure they continue to provide and support their families. It will also create the right amount of awareness within communities and the country at large with support from partners, media houses and well-wishers with an aim in reducing the risk of cancer.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a PDF file (projdoc.pdf).
