The Foundation has established key relations with several stakeholders involved in cancer control mainly Uganda Cancer Institute, Hospice Africa Uganda, and Uganda Cancer Society along with several Civil Society Organisations involved in cancer control. It us through these partnerships that CCF has been able to collaborate its actions against cancer in Uganda.
CCF has also been able to acquire a hostel accommodation for those patients undergoing aggressive chemotherapy but come from very far away (The Haven Hostel) in Bukoto. Here, the patients will be able to have a peaceful and desirable environment during this traumatic time.
Nutritional rehabilitation and counseling are one of the benefits of the residents.
In 2016, CCF established a valuable partnership with the ACS that resulted into a grant agreement. The purpose of the grant was for capacity building and strengthening CCF’s role in patient support. In so doing, CCF embarked on organizational and structural development including setting up office premises, a secretariat, the necessary policies and procedures whilst undergoing the strategic planning process to define its direction for the coming years.
CCF and other CSOs with the support from the American Cancer Society (ACS) and Uganda NCD Alliance have been able to form an umbrella organization, Uganda Cancer Society (UCS) that will coordinate our response for a meaningful collaboration and contribution in cancer control.
Through awareness programmes in schools, universities and local organisations like Rotary Clubs, the foundation has met its mission which is extending general cancer awareness to the masses. CCF was one the participants in the Human Alliance for Cancer Awareness (HACA) conferences at St. Mary`s College Kisubi. CCF has held cancer awareness talks at Kabira International School (KISU) and several Rotary clubs in Kampala.o.
