The C3 Initiative - Childhood Cancer & Covid-19

Tax benefits
The rapidly increasing Covid-19 crisis has put our childhood cancer warriors, healthcare workers and cancer survivors in grave danger. Highly dependent on an overloaded medical system and with low immunity…children with cancer are currently a  very vulnerable segment high in terms of risk.

Children undergoing cancer treatment and their care givers have to visit hospitals - and must be given complete protection through PPE - personal protective equipment like gloves, masks etc . They are already immunity compromised - and with more and more wards turning into isolation wards, might get exposed to Covid-19. 

CanKids KidsCan, India’s National Society For Change For Childhood Cancer, with a presence in  99 cancer centers  across 42 cities, is seeing  a serious need for:

1. Sourcing and purchase of higher quality N95 masks, gloves, other protection equipment and sanitizers for children, hospital staff and our support teams in hospitals

2.  Providing accommodation alternatives and food supplies for extended stay to patient families due to postponement of routine therapy in hospitals

3. Providing reimbursement for diagnostic tests undertaken locally by patient families as their hospital visits have been postponed 

4. Ambulances to take patients  across state borders as necessary

We are looking to raise a sum of 30 lakhs to cover the same. As little as Rs 2000 will go a long way in stemming the tide. All donations get 80G tax exemption and we are FCRA approved for foreign donations.

Dear Supporters,

Hope all are keeping safe and healthy where ever you are. We are overwhelmed by your generosity and in times like these. And what an incredible few weeks it has been. Here is a glimpse into just a few of the life stories that CanKids is being able to re-write with your support.

From  spotting Vishakha and her family on TV, trudging towards the border and getting them to safety in our Home Away from Home



Arranging shelter and treatment for Shreyashi (Violet mask) in our Kolkata Home Away From Home, when her hospital was declared a "Covid Treatment" Hospital



Getting Kalpana (11) and Mehfuz (4) back to their villages in Uttar Pradesh in ambulances and proper care across shut borders


Getting Laxmi to treatment at RMC Hospital Nagpur over 200km away from her hometown for her Ewings Sarcoma treatment
 

Procuring, packing, ferrying supplies across cities to hospitals and CanKids centers with the help of our partners and benefactors


Getting Bhagwat Sahu to timely followup treatment from his hometown in far away Baloda Bazaar Chattisgarh to AIIMS Raipur. 


The list of stories is never ending and so is the need. They are also testament to the strength and goodwill of the CanKids network, Well Wishers, Government Officials, Doctors, Social Workers and our Staff and volunteers which enable us to make this happen

We hope this gives you a sense on what your support allows us to do and would be great if you can share these stories and the campaign with your friends and family. We need this to achieve the financial backing to continue this work.

Together we stand strong and resolute in our battle against Childhood Cancer and Covid-19!
