This project will provide medicines and equipment in Gaza for children suffering from cancer (& some adults up to 10%). It will also develop a hospice-at-home service to keep terminally ill children out of discomfort and at home with their families during their last days. We will be working with existing cancer care services in Gaza to create a unified system to benefit all future cancer sufferers. The project will also educate clinicians, the general public and others about the importance of cancer and of life care.
