Families of children fighting cancer should not have to worry about a place to sleep during their child’s lengthy treatment.

In South Africa, childhood cancer is treated by a paediatric oncologist at a paediatric oncology unit. These facilities are not available in every town. Not only that, but dependent on the type of cancer, families might be referred to another town far from where they normally stay.

CHOC has 13 home-away-from-home accommodation facilities close to the specialised treatment centres across South Africa to accommodate out-of-town patients and a parent/caregiver during the lengthy cancer treatment phase.

The child and parent/caregiver stay at these facilities at no cost and get to spend time with other families facing similar circumstances. CHOC provides nutritional meals and a clean and safe, homely environment with caring and understanding staff – a place where new friendships are formed.

Families enjoy life outside of the ward and the sound of moms chatting and a child playing is very rewarding. On average, we accommodate 25 000 bed/night services per annum.

Help create a safe, happy home-away-from-home for children undergoing treatment.
