Small Steps Of Hope

If we concentrate on small, manageable steps, we can cross unimaginable distances in the fight to make our nation cancer free.

About Us

We are a non-profit organization focused on

providing financial, psychosocial, nutritional, medical assistance to  individuals from poor backgrounds and affected by cancer.

Cancer is a major public health concern due to its prevalence, morbidity and mortality. The worst affected are those from poor backgrounds, especially because of lack of money and information on how to overcome this deadly disease.

Our organization is focused on cancer patients from poor and low income groups located in slum settlements in Nairobi and some rural areas, who are undergoing treatment in Kenyatta Hospital, our country’s main referral hospital.

What we do

Pay for Treatment

We enroll our members into Kenya’s NHIF insurance policy and pay for them. With this, our members are able to take advantage of our country’s benevolence to those affected by cancer. We assist in other extra medical bills that are not covered by the policy.

Counselling & Psychosocial support

We hold Support group meetings twice every month, where the group members engage in different activities and encourage each other. Many of our supporters also come and spend time with our patients, encouraging them not to loos hope. We also pay for counseling sessions with a trained counselor.

Empower

We empower our members and their close dependents by training them on different easy-to-do skills that can help them make money regardless of their current condition.

Shelter

Our members who come from rural area are housed and fed at our rented rooms at Kihingo village. This enables them to seek specialized outpatient treatment Kenyatta National Hospital without the stress of commuting from their rural areas.
