Ever since we launched the Sponsor a Cancer Patient Campaign in 2013 to support five marginalized cancer patients in Zimbabwe, we have had many happy moments! We found five patients to support in October 2012 (click here to see them in video). We started fundraising and receiving donations to support them towards the end of 2012 and in January 2013, we started actively supporting them with medical needs, food and school fees for their children. Click here to read the September 2013 update and here to read another happy, moving story which came about due to one of our lovely donors.
We had to make our first Christmas with the patients we support extra special and decided to deliver Christmas food hampers to them on Christmas Day last week! Please see below for images of them receiving their hampers.
We would like to give a big THANK YOU to all our donors in 2013! You have brought a smile and helping hand to these people by helping them with food to nourish their bodies as they bravely battle their cancer and also eased their worry of how to feed their families.
*2014 will be a big year for ECCT as we plan and prepare to help the patients with sustainable projects which will enable them to start caring for themselves and their families. We will keep you updated. Meanwhile please visit our website to read about what we do by clicking here.
