Who we are

Bless a Child Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides care support services to children from the ages of 0–15 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, and has since taken care of over 7000 children.

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.

Your generosity counts

At Bless a Child Foundation, we are proud to say that our budget is 60% locally funded. This has been made possible through the generous support of our partners, both individuals and corporate organizations. Because of this support, we have been able to offer care and psychosocial support services to over 7,000 children and their care-givers for more than 10 years. Thank you for your support and generosity.
