How We Help
There are many issues facing our clients other than just their medical needs. Other social problems include lack of food, unable to work due to their illness, unable to support the family and provide school fees for their children. At KHC we try an provide a holistic approach to assisting clients and where funds are available to manage these problems.
New Hope Children’s Hostel has been one of our success stories. We have been able to assist many regional families who are disadvantaged, to relieve their anxiety and trauma as they are not only dealing with having a child suffering from a terrible disease - cancer but without our support they are unable to access the oncology services the child needs to try and fight this disease.
How You Can help
KHC depends on the generosity of people like you to continue the work we do in supporting those in our community who are disadvantaged and rely on us for their basic medical needs and where possible we try and provide some social support.
There are many ways you can get involved. You can sponsor the education of one of the orphan and vulnerable children on our waiting list; make a donation to a KHC project; provide in-kind donations such as food or clothing for the children with cancer that stay at our New Hope Hostel during their treatment; become an Empowerment Ambassador and sell our products made by our clients; or share your skills with us and volunteer at KHC.Help us to make a difference.
