Health & Hope Oasis: Supporting Children with Cancer

Commitment by

Care With Love

In 2011, Care with Love, in partnership with Friends of Children with Cancer, committed to create the 'Health and Hope Oasis' (HHO) in Egypt, a program focused on hosting and supporting children with cancer. The aim of the center was to ensure consistent and timely access to high quality medications for all children, while raising awareness among parents and families on the importance of completing medication courses, safe hygienic practices, and appropriate nutrition during recovery. HHO also hoped to provide temporary employment and volunteer opportunities for parents residing at the center. The Health and Hope Oasis intended to serve 5,000 children over the course of two years, with the goal of significantly improving cancer survival rates among children in Egypt.
