Story

Thank you for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

We want raise money to fund chemotherapy for children in Sierra Leone and to support training for the nurses and doctors to deliver the chemotherapy safely.  

Although children are dying for many reasons, some cancers will respond very quickly to low dose chemotherapy and can be cured. There is a long way to go to develop a full service but many children can be helped as this service is developing.

We are supporting the care of children with cancer.  This includes making the diagnosis, giving chemotherapy and surgery, and supporting palliative care where curative treatment is not possible.  The children are treated at Ola During Children's Hospital in Freetown, the capital of Sierra Leone.  Ola During Children's Hospital is the only designated government children's hospital in Sierra Leone.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
