Westridge High School Interact Cub donates to KidzCan Zimbabwe
KidzCan Zimbabwe has received us$500 from Westridge High School Interact Club, money raised through various activities during Orange Month.
On Orange Day, children attend school wearing orange and bring a donation that goes towards the treatment of paediatric cancer sufferers and their families.
Speaking at the reception KidzCan Zimbabwe nurse and health Coordinator Charity Kawadza said it is heartening when parents, through their children contribute to help childhood cancer patients.
“We want to thank you for the donation which will go a long way in helping children facing childhood cancer.
On behalf of KidzCan Zimbabwe and the children in hospital A4 Special Ward go and thank your parents for contributing for a worthy cause,” said Kawadza.
The Interact Club Spokesperson Adiel Bvepfepfe said they were happy to make a difference through the donation.
“We are so grateful as Westridge High Interact Club for getting the opportunity to make a difference by coming to share our love to KidzCan Zimbabwe.
“This is a learning point to us as students to have compassion and love at a higher level which will also stick to our lives forever,” said Bvepfepfe.
KidzCan provides different services that include clinical care, advocacy and case management.
The services also includes chemotherapy drugs, CT and MRI Scan, prosthetics, admission and discharge packs.
Provision of transport allowances is another critical service that ensures patients do not default on treatment.
The International Childhood Cancer Day is celebrated on the 15th of February and serves as both a national and global platform for the community of nations to raise awareness, celebrate achievements in childhood cancer, and express support for children with cancer, the survivors and their families.
