2018 YOUTH MONTH
SABC Foundation partnered with SAFM by hosting a youth day event at AB Xuma Primary School in Soweto, the school where it was said that young girls were molested by the security guard. Our Health Ambassador Chriselda Dudumashe motivated the girls to prepare them for their journey of healing. Fly SA Wise conducted Career guidance in Aviation as well as taking the girls on a helicopter ride.
Books, sanitary towels, 10 computers were donated to the schools including an introductory training in Coding.
CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation SA is the only organization in South Africa that provides comprehensive countrywide support for children with cancer and other life-threatening blood disorders, and their families.
In developed countries childhood cancer has largely become curable, with the overall survival rate reaching between 70% and 80% or higher whereas in South Africa the rate is only at about 50%. CHOC aims to ensure that more children in South Africa are cured and that the survival rate increases.
In four decades our holistic approach has evolved to ensure children are diagnosed early, access paediatric oncologist care, and are supported throughout the lengthy treatment phase, which can last up to three years. CHOC also promotes early detection and plays a leading advocacy role.
Without CHOC, many children – particularly those from low-income households living far from treatment centres – would not adhere to the necessary but arduous treatment path.
