From Our Founder’s Desk.

The year has been good to us, we are grateful to God and to you all for your support.
When we started Daivyan Children Cancer Foundation, we started with the sole intent to inspire hope and impact into lives, through dedication, passion and Love, today over 18months after, we are still here, doing what we set out to do from day 1 and not ready to compromise standards, we want to lead and spur others to do more and we hope that 2018 will see more bodies rising up to join this fight against Childhood Cancer in Nigeria.

On the 12th of December 2017, Blooming Greens Schools raised the sum of #272,000 for Daivyan Children Cancer Foundation, we at the foundation decided we were going to buy a mobile oxygen Concentrator for the ward but after we had made our intentions known to the management of the ward, we were informed that some other group had donated that and so we thought of something else that was needed to be taken care of at the ward and the Isolation Room came to mind. This room is meant to be a mini-ICU in a developed society but ours here was nothing to write home about. We knew the #272,000 was not going to sort it out but we were determined to fix it and with 7-10days to our Merry Gold-Red Christmas, we set to work and changed the face of the Isolation room of the pediatric oncology ward LUTH.
