BCF is duly registered with the mandate to operate countrywide. We are subscribed members of the Union of International Cancer Control (UICC), the Uganda Cancer Society (UCS), and Childhood Cancer International (CCI). BCF operates within Uganda, extending its services to all children who are undergoing treatment for cancer regardless of their sex, origin, nationality or religious orientation. In response to the most pressing needs of the children, BCF runs an Akiba Home (a recovery home) in Kampala since 2010 and another in Gulu since 2015. Our homes are located strategically near national hospitals that provide medical care and support for children receiving treatment for cancer.
From our experience, given the high cost of cancer treatment, it is often rural families and the poor that need the most support as they seek treatment for their children. It is for this reason that BCF exists and continues to make its services more accessible to all families battling with cancer.
