Foundation for Cancer Care in Tanzania

Phase II

ENHANCE PATIENT CARE (INPATIENT WARD & FAMILY CARE HOSTEL)

In Progress (2018 – 2020)

Family Care Hostel Raising Funds

The hostel will offer shelter, support and hope for patients and families receiving cancer treatment at KCMC, eliminating barriers to care - including housing, bathroom and shower facilities. A shared kitchen, living area and children’s playground are part of the hostel plan.

Half of the needed funds for construction have been raised by other partners. We are excited to announce that we have launched a GoFundMe campaign specifically to raise funds for the Family Care Hostel at KCMC. You can help us publicize this campaign on Facebook and Twitter or make a donation by going to https://www.gofundme.com/family-care-hostel
