Circle of Hope visits Swakopmund
Under the Cancer Association of Namibia’s Family Support Centre, the Circle of Hope Project started its first activities in Swakopmund to provide psycho-social counselling and support programmes which will aid cancer patients and their families.
The Cancer Association of Namibia received N$150,000 from Standard Bank in support of the Project, strengthening their long standing relationship. “The Circle of Hope will aid in providing training for volunteers to support newly diagnosed patients and their families, improve the quality of life of patients and their families, provide support to caregivers, survivors and volunteers, reduce cancer mortality and promote public awareness on cancer,” said Rolf Hansen Chief Executive of the Cancer Association of Namibia.
Hansen added that the Cancer Association values the unwavering support and dedication in the fight against cancer that they have received from the blue bank.
Sigrid Tjijorokisa, Head of Marketing at the bank said they value the 15 year relationship they have with the Cancer Association and they want to make an impact nationally for the fight against cancer. From Swakopmund, the next Circle of Hope excursion will be held in Mariental at the end of this month.
