Help  our children with Cancer LIVE and BREATHE! 

As the second wave of Covid -19 ravages India, this time affecting children and young adults who were spared the last time, children with cancer and their families are at a very high risk.

Lower immunity, stretched medical infrastructure with a desperate need for oxygen and concentrators, unexpected discharges with hospitals being turned into corona only centers, stranded families on footpaths,  medical staff, doctors, social workers down with Covid;  are stretching resources to the limit and endangering our children's lives.

Using our field experience from last year where we helped over 20000 children with cancer, CanKids KidsCan - National Society For Change For Childhood Cancer in India needs your help to provide children with cancer, their families and the doctors who protect them LIVE and BREATHE and are raising funds to provide  the following

1. Sourcing and purchase of oxygen concentrators (each concentrator costs Rs 45000) , high quality N95 masks, and other protection equipment for children, hospital staff and our support teams in hospitals

2.  Providing shared care treatment in alternate hospitals, accommodation alternatives and food supplies for extended stay to patient families

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

4. Online E-clinic services for schooling, nutrition and psychological support for children, parents survivors and caregivers

As little as Rs 5000 will go a long way in stemming the raging tide. All donations get 80G tax exemption and we are FCRA approved for foreign donations

Here are some reports from the field from last year which will give you an idea of the kind of impact your generosity has.

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

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

To getting a new Home Away From Home opened in record time in order
to house Bharti and her family (stuck far away from Uttarakhand) in hygienic conditions so she can be safe in lockdown after her chemotherapy

Getting Mehfooz and Kalpana back to their homes in Uttar Pradesh across locked borders and ensuring right follow up medication reaches them

Ensuring that 5 year old  Rudra does not have to travel from Surat to Ahmedabad for follow up for leukemia treatment in adverse conditions. Our social worker Bhumika not only arranged the right hospital, right doctor but also arranged for transport, food and rations for Rudra's family!

These are just some life stories we rewrite with your help every day!
