KidzCan provides different services that include clinical care, advocacy, and case management. We also offer Chemotherapy drugs, CT and MRI Scans and transport allowances so that patients do not default on their appointments. Under supportive services, we source and provide prosthetics, admission, and discharge packs. KidzCan Zimbabwe also conducts Paediatric Cancer Early Detection and Awareness Campaigns/Workshops which were piloted in Mashonaland Central. On top of this, we advocate for subsidized private specialized medical/health services and promote paediatric oncology services within the public health system. KidzCan Zimbabwe has a holistic approach where we not only assist patients themselves but also their caregivers.
We also provide individual and group counselling to children, parents, and caregivers. Prior to COVID-19, parent support groups were conducted weekly. Our volunteers would hold structured plays, and a clown would visit the ward every week. Additionally, children receive play and learning materials.
The KidzCan team comprises of a mixed bag of people with different competencies and skills. The organisation has a lean staff structure and a rich base of volunteers who enable the day-to-day smooth running of the organisation. We are dedicated to making sure that children with cancer in Zimbabwe are given adequate help and support.
