ABOUT US

We are a center for hope to all cancer patients in Uganda.

The Foundation has established its impact on cancer initially through setting up a patient hostel – The Haven.

Not having to worry about where to stay or how to pay for accommodation allows patients to focus on getting better.

The Haven hostel offers free accommodation to patients that receive treatment far away from home.

We aim to increase patient’s compliance with treatment regimens and protocols through practical and social support.
