The Board of Trustees of the Children's Cancer Center of Lebanon (CCCL) and its team members, extend their deepest condolences to the families of the victims of the explosion in Beirut and wish the injured a speedy recovery. We hope that Lebanon will recover from this catastrophic ordeal.

 

This tragedy and the destruction it left behind has led to the disruption and/or the destruction of certain hospitals, as well as to the displacement of many families which affects the continuation of the children’s treatment at these hospitals.

 

In line with its mission: “No child should die at the dawn of life,”theChildren's Cancer Center of Lebanon pledges to provide treatment and financial support, to all children with cancer, in full cooperation with their doctors and the hospitals in which they were being treated at, providing psychological and social support for these children and their families, and this for a period of six months.

 

We call upon hospitals and all oncology doctors who wish to be part of this emergency relief response, to contact CCCL’s hotlineon 76-371717, as a specialized emergency unit has been established to follow up on this matter. Medications and medical supplies will also be provided to secure all needs.

 

This initiative is subject to scientific and transparent management and coordination with the concerned hospitals and doctors.

 

We need your support, now more than ever, to be able to sustain the treatment of all kids with cancer. This tragic explosion added to the crisis we are all suffering from, but with you by our side, we will be able to fulfil our vision in providing access to free treatment and care to all children with cancer in Lebanon without any discrimination.

 

Cancer does not wait. We need you.
