It’s scary for a child facing cancer treatment anywhere in the world, but imagine travelling for 16 hours from your remote village to a hospital, to a city you have never been to. For children and their parents in lesser-resourced countries this is often their circumstance.
It’s why our partners in Nepal are building capacity for cancer care and palliative care. In our last ‘Postcard’ we reported a new joint venture between Bhaktapur Cancer Hospital – where three-year-old Arhan (pictured with his grandmother) is in care – BC Children’s Hospital, Canada and Two Worlds Cancer Collaboration.
As of now this joint venture has been extended to include Kanti Children’s Hospital in Kathmandu. The 350-bed hospital has a 25-bed children’s cancer ward providing treatment, palliative and end-of-life care.
Your generous support of Two Worlds Cancer Collaboration via GlobalGiving means that healthcare providers are trained in the specialized, compassionate care that children, like Arhan, and their families need.
It means children receive pain relief and treatment and their families are supported in their journey. We thank you for your continued support.
