£5 a month will pay for National Hospital Insurance Fund to enable a breast cancer patient to receive some of the vital treatment they need.
Just £10 a month will sponsor a primary school child of a parent who is affected by breast cancer, by buying uniform, shoes, textbooks and paying for a meal at school. As the parent is unable to work, the wider family can be greatly affected, including children who have to work to provide for the family.
£25 a month will pay for a regular patient care package, which includes toothpaste, sanitary towels, and non-perishable food such as lentils, kidney beans, tinned fish, rice. A shortage of nutritious food can make people undergoing breast cancer treatment more ill. Some of the women are already struggling and on the poverty line, which means they have an extremely difficult choice - whether to pay for their medication or buy vital nutritious food.
£50 a month will pay for breast cancer patients group support sessions, which includes paying for someone to run sessions on healthy eating, wellbeing and recovering from cancer.

What else are we planning?
Our current goal is to build a new dedicated cancer care centre in Embu, Kenya.
This will provide a provide a sanctuary for cancer sufferers and their families, with a combination of openness and intimacy that will characterise the interior of the centre.
There will also be an outside garden area adjacent to the centre, providing a restful and calming place with several sitting areas, perfect for small private family gatherings.
We have already secured 2 acres of land and we are starting construction in January. However, we need to raise £75,000+ to fully fund this critical new facility, so anything you can do to help would be amazing.
After that project is completed, we are hoping to add an orphanage afterwards, so watch this space for more updates!
