“Cancer can take away all of my physical abilities. It cannot touch my mind, it cannot touch my heart, and it cannot touch my soul.”
Background & Mission Statement
The Children Cancer Hope non-profit was founded in 2011 to improve the quality of life for children fighting cancer and their families in Yemen. We try to help those in need at any stage of their illness and recovery. We help to ease the financial burdens that accompany major illness; give crucial support, comfort and help to address the challenges they face. Also the CCH helps to provide lifesaving pharmaceutical drugs, medical supplies, equipment to facilities, as well as enriching toys for children during their stay. Further, we are trying to provide educational programs to assist with the child’s academic progress while away from school for treatment.
Present Conditions in Yemen
Yemen is being called the “world’s worst humanitarian crisis.” Over 20 million people are at risk for famine, and aid agencies are desperately funneling as much aid as possible to at-risk families. On top of that, The situation in Yemen remains volatile with constant unrest and violent clashes between Al-Houthi rebels and the Yemeni government along with their supporters and allies. There is a high threat from Al-Houthi rebels in the Arabian Peninsula and it continues to threaten further attacks.
Unfortunately, because of all the continuing unrest and violence, the number of victims increases due to financial restraints and logistical difficulties, like a lack of roads and hospitals. Many children suffer from an absence of supplies or pharmaceutical drugs; some patients are forced to pay large sums of money to see a cancer specialist. Yemen is witness to one of the highest rates of cancer in the Middle East and North Africa region, increasing at a trajectory 10 times higher than any other Arab country.
When you donate now, your aid is their relief.
