Weʼve raised £1,000 to Fund Cancer Care in Moshi, Tanzania. In memory and honor of Chu Chu, Mussa, Imran and Nahya. Helping more people have more tomorrows.
- Runcorn, UK
- Funded on Monday, 12th November 2018
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
In 2017 we trekked Kilimanjaro with Mussa, our Head Guide from Moshi - a kind, gentle family man, and head guide for our trek . We trekked in aid of Cancer Research UK.
We were devastated to learn that his wife Chu Chu had died in May 2017 of breast cancer. Chu Chu simply did not have access to the needed information or treatment to help save her, and left her family far far too early.
We are determined to do something to help. We trek again with Mussa on 10th September 2018.
Access to cancer care in Tanzania is extremely difficult, sadly. There are justTHREE cancer care centers to serve FIFTY MILLION people .........
There now exists a center for cancer care in Moshi. Moshi is Mussa's home town, and the start point for almost all treks to Kilimanjaro. The center (FFCCIT) is one of only three such facilities in Tanzania. It exists to help educate and treat the community - more details may be found here ; Cancer Care Moshi Center PLEASE take 4 minutes and fifty seconds to view the video.
The center is charity funded. Let's help make it more successful, and give families like Mussa's more tomorrows with their loved ones. It's as simple as that.
For a very small fraction of the cost of a trek, pair of boots,coat, tank of petrol, night out...... you can help make a real difference. Please donate whatever you can, however large or small. We have set the target as £1000, but we're certain that we can achieve more than that to help.
Collectively, we can make a huge difference.

This is so important. We often take for granted how lucky we are in this country to have access to the most current and effective cancer therapy. I'm happy to support this cause, good luck guys.
