World Child Cancer UK

Over 300,000 children worldwide develop cancer each year. In the developed world, 80% will survive. In the developing world, as few as 10% will survive. Every 3 minutes a child with cancer dies.

We are working hard to change this. With better access to relatively simple and inexpensive treatment, it is possible to improve survival rates to over 60%.

Our vision is a world where every child with cancer has equal access to the best treatment and care.

Founded 2007

  • Mission statement

    Our mission is to improve diagnosis, treatment, and support for children with cancer, and their families, in the developing world.

    We currently support nine childhood cancer programmes in Africa, Asia and Central America. Last year, 5,524 children with cancer accessed improved services as a result of our work.

    With your support, we can help even more children with cancer this year.
