Leukemia Treatment Center in Sanaa revealed an increase in cases of leukemia patients among children from 300 to 700 cases. The center's director said that since its opening in 2014, the center has received about "1000" cases, 400 cases are frequently in the center, stressing that 30% of the cases died as a result of their delay in treatment and also as a result of the ongoing war, lack of medicine, and blockade that prevented them from receiving treatment abroad.
Children Leukemia Treatment Center in Sana'a lacks the basic facilities and equipment as a result of the increase in affected children. Children's families also can't afford medical care for life-threatening diseases and transportation. The ongoing war and severe poverty afflict the majority of Yemeni people. Besides, families who come from remote areas do not have housing to lodge in.
This project will contribute in the provision of appropriate free building for the families who come from far villages of Sana'a. Moreover, it will provide the necessary medicine for the affected children. Besides, we will purchase gifts, books, toys, and materials for fun. A psychological program will be conducted for the affected children to enhance their healing process.
The provision of the necessary medicine for the Children Leukemia Treatment Center in Sana'a will be a sustainable solution for the problem of the increased number of affected children. Moreover, providing free housing for people coming from remote villages will have a long-term impact financially and psychologically on poor Yemeni families.
