THE YEAR 2020!

December  28, 2020

So far, the year has been an amazing one and we are glad it's coming to an end. We send our best of wishes during this festive period and also extend our gratitude to all our donors for the gracious support throughout the year. 2020 came with a lot of ups and down, but still we remained resilient in the face of it all. 

The year saw us undergoing a series of projects, from the siting of our new center at Surulere Lagos, to the free cervical and breast ultrasound screening of 1000 community women amongst many other projects. We accomplished these objectives with the aid from the GlobalGiving community at large and other donors. For this, we say THANK YOU!.

HIGHLIGHTS OF 2020!

JUNE - Mask Up Initiative

The Mask Up Initiative was a campaign geared to respond to the Covid 19 global pandemic. The objective was to eliminate/reduce the risk of cancer patients contacting the deadly virus by donating quality face masks to cancer patients and their caregivers. We were able to donate over 1000 masks to cancer patients all over Nigeria.

 

SEPTEMBER - Little by Little Campaign

The Covid-19 pandemic led to a 90% reduction in the number of patients we could treat. The objective of this campaign was to raise funds for the completion of our new Surulere Chemotherapy Clinic. Although this objective hasn't been fully achieved due to inadequate funding, yet we are proud to boast of 70% completion of the building project and hope to get to 100% during the 1st quarter of 2021.

 

OCTOBER - Free Cervical Screenings and Breast Ultrasound

Geared towards achieving the W.H.O ambitious  goal of the elimination of screening 70% of women in LMICs Cervical Cancer, the Foundation started a campaign to give free screenings to 1000 community women in Surulere, Mushin and its environ. The Campaign is  long term due to the fact that, due to the Covid pandemic we cannot have many people in one place at the same time. We shall continue until we achieve our target of screening 1000 women. 

 

NOVEMBER - Portable Hematology Analyzer

Chemotherapy patients need a full blood count before each treatment cycle. For their comfort, we are raising funds for a portable hematology analyzer which will help our patients with accurate and efficient. This project is still active as enough funds haven't been donated. We know we can always count on the GlobalGiving community.

We look forward to 2021 as we continue striving to make the best of impacts to humanity.

Summary

With a view to reducing the risk of coronavirus on cancer patients, the mask up initiative which started on the 4th of june was geared towards eliminating the risk of cancer patients contracting the deadly virus by donating quality masks to cancer patients and their caregivers. 


Target reached

The initiative donated masks to the oncology department of various hospitals across different states in Nigeria. From NSIA-LUTH Cancer Center (NLCC) In Surulere, Lagos to Oncology department of National Hospital, Abuja to Ibadan, Kebbi,Gombe and Enugu. With over 600 quality masks donated to these locations, cancer patients and their caregivers were equipped to stop the spread of the deadly virus.  

 

Challenges

Due to limited funding, we were only able to reach 6 states out of the 36 states in the country. There are still thousands of patients who need help, please help by sending this email to friends, family and colleagues to support the cause, by donating to our project, which will reduce the risk for this immuno-compromised being infected with covid-19 virus.

There are about 500,000 people diagnosed with cancer in Nigeria annually. Majority of them are immuno-suppressed which means that if they are infected with the Corona virus there are very likely to be severe complications or even death.

Many of cancer patients in Nigeria cannot afford the treatment so adding the cost of masks to that will be an added hardship.

This is the reason for St Cyril Foundation's #maskupcancerpatients mini project to provide masks for 5000 people.

We have provided masks for patients in 7 cancer treatment centers across Nigeria. We have only partially covered 5 out of the 36 States in Nigeria

Please support us by sending this link  https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/mask-up-cancer-patients-nigeria/   to all your friends and relations. 

Help us to reach our goal of 5,000 masks for cancer patients in Nigeria 

Thank you so much,
