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.


Tuberculosis (TB) is curable and preventable.

However, people living with HIV are 16 times more likely to fall ill with TB than people without HIV.

KHC have identified 5 hotspots in the slum areas and our staff reach out to the most at risk population with weekly visits to one of the hotspots. 

The people are tested and given medication if they are HIV and/or TB positive. Preventative work and counselling are key to assisting this group who are susceptible to HIV/TB. The key to the success of our project is meeting these people at risk in their own environment. Many do not have the means nor the courage to come to the clinic.

To end TB, requires leadership and commitment to resourcing and funding to programs like KHC’s.
