Child cancer is the most curable form of cancer. Despite good medical facilities, 4 out of 10 children don't complete their treatment due to their families being overwhelmed by the financial and emotional burden
90% of these abandonments happen in the first 4 weeks of the treatment before the definitive funding comes in. The Emergency Fund will be used as an interim fund in the initial weeks of treatment to support low income families in their most vulnerable times hence reducing the abandonment rates.
About 1,000 children, who perhaps would not be able to complete their treatment, will benefit from this Emergency Fund.
