Hello all this is for a charity called CHOC (Childhood cancer foundation South Africa)
The organisation, which is not Government funded, provides direct practical help to children with cancer, from diagnosis on, recognising the inevitable disruption to family life when a child faces vigorous and often lengthy treatment.
Funds raised are applied to directly benefit the children and their families, and also those involved in the treatment of these most serious illnesses.
Come on guys just think if each of us and our friends can try and donate just R10 per person ( or a little more) just think all the lives that will be touched and stress lifted off the parents.
Please take a minute and think how you would feel if that was your child brother, sister or one of your parents. Would you not also seek the help of others when in need. Please try and help with what ever you can.
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page.
Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to donate. Your contribution to this page will benefit the charity listed on the left.
Please donate generously.
Many thanks for your support.
CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation
CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation SA is the only organisation in South Africa that provides comprehensive countrywide support for children with cancer and other life-threatening blood disorders, and their families. CHOC has a head office in Johannesburg, six regional offices, two branches, and 12 accommodation facilities close to treatment centres. CHOC relies heavily on corporate sponsors, donations from groups or individuals wanting to make a difference in the lives of these little ones.
Their comprehensive support improves the welfare and quality of care of children with cancer and offers families a wide range of psychosocial services and practical support such as counselling, free accommodation, free transport and transport fund to ensure that no child abandons treatment due to the family not affording transport costs, food parcels as they recognise the financial difficulties families often face and parent to parent support groups. CHOC also plays a leading advocacy role and promotes early detection to save lives nationally.
