In late 2015, FCCT will break ground on the Cancer Care Centre (CCC), the Northern Healthcare Zone’s first designated cancer care facility. The CCC will be located on the campus of Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Centre in Moshi, Tanzania. It will be built via several construction phases, which are outlined below.
In its first full year of operation, the CCC will serve more than 1,300 patients–individuals who might otherwise have no access to care. Will you help us make that happen? Make a donation today.
