Nutrition for children fighting cancer

The Bake Collective is raising funds to provide 1 months ration (worth INR 1,500/-) to 40 families relocated to Mumbai to treat their children fighting cancer.

It was noticed due to financial constraints families of children fighting cancer who relocate to large cities like Mumbai for treatments are unable to provide meals for themselves and for their children due to which a child is unable to maintain the daily calorie intake. Hence the chance of abandoning the treatment increases. By providing them with monthly ration through Cuddles Foundation we ensure that children are also provided with wholesome meals at home.

Bakers/Volunteers please fill the form:

Note: 10% of the funds will be deducted to run the campaign included the Bake Sale setup costs and our online fundraising Partner Milaap’s fee and payment gateway expenses.

Mumbai: Saturday, 2nd April 2016, outside Al’s Tattoo Salon, Opposite St. Peter’s Church, Hill Road, Bandra West.

Dear Supporters,

I am Ibrahim, a Milaap Open Fellow. On Saturday, April 2nd, I got to experience the Bake Collective’s Bake Sale held at Hill Road Bandra. I met with Charlene Vaz, co-founder of The Bake Collective, and her team. My attention immediately turned towards the array of scrumptious goodies that were on display. I learnt that more were on the way. To help with the sale, there were more than 20 super enthusiastic youngsters from the Muskurahat Foundation who had participated.

The table was perfectly laid out with the desserts baked by a number of volunteers, and the group from Muskurahat Foundation had marched onto the streets with baskets full of  goodies, to be sold. There were very rare moments when the table was not  crowded, rest of the time it was  blocked by the horde of curious onlookers who could not help but lay their eyes on the delicious treats.

Nooresa, from the Cuddles Foundation, was also a part of the event. I learnt from her that only 2 out of 10 children afflicted with cancer in India are able to survive against 8 out of 10 worldwide. One of the main reasons for this is that the treatment responds poorly if the patient is undernourished. A lot of poor families who migrate from their villages, only for their child’s treatment, are unable to provide proper food to them. Dieticians from Cuddles formulate a proper and healthy diet for them which  is then provided to these families free of cost.

I found Mahak and Revati, two of the bakers from the evening, carrying a specifically exotic looking treat. I somehow assumed  that something with the names ‘Lemongrass infused white chocolate tart and candied ginger’ and  ‘peanut butter mocha tart’, had to be exotic. It was being sold for 100 a pack. Well worth the price, I must admit. “I love baking, and if my baking can help this cause, then why not,” Mahak admitted.

Finally, I caught up with Charlene, who was running to and fro  and dealing with the customers as well as the  bakers and back again to the customers. She sends her heartfelt thanks to the donors for such a successful campaign. On the next day, she revealed that they had raised Rs. 35,820 through the sale, making it a total of Rs. 1,52,720 raised. Since it has exceeded  their initial target, TBC will now be able to provide 66 families with a month’s nutrition for their little fighters via Cuddles. The remaining amount will go towards supporting WWH Foundation. They will conduct English conversation classes to impart basic English writing skills in three slum hamlets. The funding will go towards Infrastructural and logistics costs like obtaining charts, stationery, posters, completion certificates, and volunteer travel expenses, amongst others and for  paying the teachers’ salaries.

Here are a few pictures from the Bake sale.
