Is Buying a Gift Stressful?

Often when faced with what to buy someone for their birthday or other occasion, we want to think that they ‘like’ what we have chosen.  If you have family or friends that are difficult to buy for or say they have everything they need, then they may appreciate a Gift Card that supports a worthwhile project. A gift that has lasting value and a gift that makes a difference. For example, US$10, will provide this little boy, who has cancer, and his caregiver with 3 meals a day for a week.

You can purchase a Gift Card through GlobalGiving and the options are:

  • Make a donation in honour of someone special and send them a note and if you wish to support our children with cancer, the project name is “Helping poor children with cancer to access treatment.”
  • Or buy a Gift Card and the recipient can redeem it to a project that matters to them. Hopefully our project!

Your friend will receive a gift that keeps on giving.  https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/keeping-poor-children-with-cancer-alive-in-uganda/

 

World Cancer Day is 4 February

It is a global initiative by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC).  Cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide accounting for nearly one in six deaths. The most common are breast, lung, colon and rectum and prostate cancers.

What are some of the things you can do to reduce your cancer risk?

  • Choose healthy foods.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Quit smoking or vaping.
  • Cut down on alcohol.
  • Be sun smart and cover up in the sun and wear sunscreen.
  • Get vaccinated against HPV. 

Where you live shouldn’t determine if you live.

Early diagnosis and access to treatment are crucial in giving children a change to survive. Our New Hope Children’s hostel in 2022 provided 360 children and caregivers with free accommodation, meals, transport and this support enabled the children to access treatment.

Our goal is to get these children back to their families so they can have a future.
