"One hundred years from now it will not matter what kind of car I drove, what kind of house I lived in, how much money I had in my bank account, nor what my clothes looked like. But the world may be a little better because I was important in the life of a child."
- Forest E. Witcraft

IAEA/ Programme of Action for Cancer Therapy (PACT)

  • Bosnia & Herzegovina – Haematology & Oncology Department of Sarajevo Paediatric Clinic.  Equipping the ‘Parents House' for children receiving cancer treatment including medical equipment, furniture, playroom items, music and art therapy materials.
  • El Salvador – Oncology Unit, National Paediatric Hospital in San Salvador. Provision of recreational and hygienic equipment for children receiving cancer treatment.
  • Zimbabwe – Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals in Harare.  Ensuring clinical support for children with cancer through the purchase of a large refrigerator for safe storage of pediatric oncology medication.
