This holiday season, gift good health and cheer to underprivileged children with cancer in India for under a dollar a day!
Children with cancer already have compromised immune systems. The continued onslaught of Covid has put them at greater risk and created massive stress on an already overloaded healthcare system in India, especially for the poor and those coming from small towns to cities seeking treatment for their children. Organizations like CanKids Kidscan have been leading the charge on a war footingfooting.
Founded by Poonam Bagai, herself a cancer survivor, CanKids KidsCan has been helping children with cancer since 2004. A grassroots organization, driven by passion and commitment, CanKids provides holistic support to children with cancer and their families, from the moment of detection, through diagnosis, treatment and after. By working in partnership with 103 Cancer hospitals and centers in 47 cities of India, the CanKids YANA – You are Not Alone approach fills critical gaps (e.g. nurses, health care workers, medicine, accommodation, food ) providing access to care and has a proven record of improving the lives of over 18,000 children with cancer each year at around a dollar a day per child.
Your gift will bring hope and smiles to underprivileged children battling cancer by providing diagnostics, medications, nutrition, transportation, accommodations, counseling and education for these children and their families across India.
This fundraiser is organized by Relief From Cancer, a US-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit with tax-exempt ID 82-2128054 for the benefit of our partner organization, CanKids KidsCan. 100% of funds raised will pay for direct expenses incurred by CanKids to provide support to children with cancer and their families.
