Dear Friends of CHOC
Covid-19 / the Corona Virus is having a global impact and is effecting each one of us. Of concern to CHOC is the health and safety of all involved with CHOC, especially the children and teens with cancer who are under treatment, many of whom have compromised immune systems. In addition to that, the lockdown as outlined by the President in his speech, means that as an organisation we will have to limit the number of services we offer to our children and families. Be rest assured that all CHOC staff will be working remotely to ensure that operations continue and that we are able to continue to provide support to our children and families to ensure that they are safe and are able to continue with their treatment.
As a result of the lockdown, all CHOC fundraising events (both internal and external) and CHOC Cow sporting activities have been cancelled which will result in a significant loss of income in the foreseeable future. Without a steady flow of income we will struggle to continue to provide our beneficiaries with the care and support they need, which will have a significant impact on their overall well-being.
We appeal to all of our loyal supporters to open your hearts and help us continue to walk the journey with the children and their families. We are only able to do this if we have sufficient resources to implement our programmes.
