Bless a Child Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides care support services to children from the ages of 0–12 years suffering from cancer and related infections. Established in March 2007, Bless a Child Foundation was founded as a result of a realized need that paediatric cancer patients in Uganda had inadequate access to medical care and support.
Through our various care activities Bless a Child Foundation ensures that all paediatric cancer patients referred access the proper diagnosis and cancer treatment required. In addition Bless a Child Foundation conducts additional activities to ensure that the paediatric patients under our care continue to the extent possible to live normal lives including making certain that they receive educational services, games and entertainment while undergoing treatment.our mission
