What We Do
World Child Cancer finances transfer of knowledge and skills to local, regional and international hospitals to improve cure and treatment for children with cancer.
What We Do
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.
