We hope that you are having a wonderful 2016 so far! Here at ECCT we are surprised at how fast it is flying by. In this blog, we would love to update all of you on the progress of the cancer patients and their families, and to show you some images from one of our latest visits one week ago.

We are currently supporting four families living in Hatcliffe, Harare. Out of the four families – we support three children with school fees; two cancer patients through the provision of some medical costs, and provide food hampers to all of the families.

We are so happy that two of the children – Tapiwa (Form 4 at Success College) and Marcia (Grade 7 at Hatcliffe 1 Primary School) are currently attending school and we are currently assisting A star student Tanya (in image above) with further education options, as she has just completed her O’Levels. Sadly, Tapiwa was not at home during the visit, so we were unable to capture a photo of him.

Here are a few images from the visit to the patients last week by our Field Officer Francis Nyachowe and Volunteer Portia Takaendisa. We would like to thank these two for the wonderful work they are doing on the ground, and to thank all those who assist us through donations.

The operation was successful, but sadly Virimayi passed away in 2014 from an incident unrelated to his cancer. We continue to support the family.
