How we work

Over 400.000 children develop cancer worldwide each year

World Child Cancer NL works together with our main partner the Princess Máxima Center for pediatric oncology and focusses on twinning programmes with partner hospitals in low and middle-income countries. Partner hospitals form the basis of our programmes and are of vital importance.

It’s possible to save the lives of children with easily treatable cancers using relatively simple and inexpensive drugs and procedures.
