In the battle against paediatric cancer, victory against the disease is never a guarantee and even with the best efforts of the doctors, we sometimes we lose a child. When this happens, BCF offers as much support to the family as they can.
Loss of a child may occur at the hospital, at the home of the child, and sometimes at the care home of Bless a Child Foundation.
Whenever this happens, we assist the family to access mortuary services, buy a casket, and repatriate the body back to their home for interment.
We also provide the family with financial assistance to offset the cost of the funeral. This greatly eases the financial and emotional burden on the family of the deceased child.
