Cancer does not discriminate…..
However, access to treatment for children from poor rural communities does as the families often cannot afford the accommodation, transport and food during treatment.

See how a little help goes a long way. New Hope Children’s Hostel is participating in the littlexlittle campaign to raise funds to buy food for the children with cancer staying at our hostel.
From Monday 13 to Friday 17 September, if you donate up to US$50 GlobalGiving will match 50% of your donation. That means your generous donation will go even further.

Together we can make sure these children have a fighting chance to beat this horrible disease.
How Good Is This!
Annet is 5 years old and was diagnosed with cancer in 2019. The good news is that she is well on the road to recovery. She lives with her 2 siblings and her parents who try and support the family through small scale farming. When she became very ill her mother took her to different hospitals and clinics and treatment attempts remained unsuccessful.
“It was a terrible time and I felt helpless, having just given birth to our third child and my husband had to go to Rwanda to take care of his sick mother.”
Fortunately a neighbor connected them to a doctor at Mulago hospital. She was diagnosed with lymphenode cancer and treatment was started. With the help of New Hope Children’s Hostel she and her mother had food, accommodation and transport during her treatment. She is now on routine medical reviews. Her mother says “Annet was malnourished and at the hostel with the nourishing food she was given, she gained weight. I am very grateful my daughter is now recovering. If we hadn’t had the support of the hostel, we could not afford for her to have had the care and treatment my little girl would have died.”
