Campaign Story

Kidzcan Children’s Cancer relief provides chemotherapy drugs to children suffering with cancer in Zimbabwe. They also provide financial support for diagnostic testing, as well as psycho-social support to families, and a volunteer program which provides play time and art therapy for children in the hospital. Kidzcan also educates communities about the early warning signs of childhood cancer through an outreach program.

Most childhood cancers are curable- if detected early and treated effectively. The survival rate in Zimbabwe can only be improved through increased education about the signs and symptoms of childhood cancer, and improved effective treatment, a major component of which, is access to chemotherapy.

KidzCan supplies free chemotherapy drugs to any child suffering with cancer in Zimbabwe, giving the child the right to the fight. To compliment this, Kidzcan funds all required diagnostic tests in order to obtain accurate and speedy diagnosis for life-saving treatment. The national awareness and education, outreach and parent support programs also aid in achieving the goal of increasing the survival rate of children with cancer in Zimbabwe.

Kidzcan’s goal is for the children suffering with cancer in Zimbabwe to have the same access to medical care as those children in the developed world. The overall goal is to increase the survival rate of children with cancer in Zimbabwe. The organisation provides access to chemotherapy drugs and diagnostic testing, along with other important services is to make this goal a reality.
