The Uganda Child Cancer Foundation (UCCF) is a non-governmental organization founded mainly by the Uganda Cancer Institute staff, parents of children with cancer, and other concerned individuals, and later translated into a national NGO. It was formed to support children and young persons suffering from cancer in Uganda, by providing direct treatment and social support to children made vulnerable by limited resources, and to advocate for cancer control and management.
Our mission: We believe that even the poorest child with cancer should receive the best quality care, and we work to reduce the burden of cancer in Uganda through financial support, health literacy, pysho-social support, advocacy and awareness..
Join a million people who care about cancer
THE ONE MILLION CAMPAIGN
Current research shows that cancer kills more people than HIV, malaria and Tuberculosis combined.
I am happy to be part of the one million campaign. Many people are not aware or are misinformed about cancer. I will change that, starting today, with this card, i pledge to raise awareness and educate my friends, family and community about cancer.
We are also proud of the different artists that have joined the cause in the fight against Cancer in our one million campaign. We have artists like Keko, Naava Grey, Felx D'papper, Katalina, Daisy Ejang, Coopy Bly. We also have television presenters like Joshua Poro, Sheila and Nicole, actor Prynce, and comedian Pablo.
I will encourage living active and healthy lifestyles to lower the risk of getting cancer, promote early detection and spread the word in-order to reduce the stigma for cancer.
And this is where your support will go:
Children who are part of the 3C (Children Caring about Cancer) clubs that are set up in schools across the country pay a small fee to cover the cost of the promotional and educational materials that we provide them with. Health workers, hospital staff and other individuals are also welcome to join the 3C movement, to show their support for these youth-led cancer awareness campaigns. The costs are as follows:
Primary level students: UGX 1000
Secondary level students: UGX 2000
Tertiary level students and adults: UGX 5000
This membership certifies a person as a member of the 3C club for life, and signifies that they are part of a group of young people fighting cancer in their schools and communities.
