Indonesia Expat - - Announcements -

The Chil­dren’s Can­cer Charity Club (CCCC) was es­tab­lished to raise aware­ness about chil­dren who are di­ag­nosed with can­cer across In­done­sia. Can­cer is widely known as one of the most ma­lig­nant dis­eases that is in­cred­i­bly hard to con­tain or erad­i­cate.

For CCCC, it is im­por­tant not to for­get these kids who are bat­tling ev­ery sin­gle day of their lives to sur­vive and have a fu­ture of their own. The foun­da­tion has come up with mul­ti­ple cam­paigns over the years to make sure that this goal is ac­com­plished. In 2014, for ex­am­ple, CCCC raised a to­tal of Rp.235 mil­lion (US$17,600) from 35 com­pa­nies, while a year later it col­lected Rp.110 mil­lion (US$8,000) from 55 com­pa­nies. In 2016, CCCC con­tin­ued its fundrais­ing, col­lect­ing Rp.120 mil­lion (US$7,000) from 73 com­pa­nies.

This year, the foun­da­tion has com­pleted a se­ries of events to main­tain its cam­paigns. In July, CCCC cel­e­brated Na­tional Chil­dren’s Day which co­in­cided with the Aware­ness Month of Chil­dren with Can­cer. For this cel­e­bra­tion, CCCC or­ga­nized a spe­cial Arts and Cul­tural evening on the July 17, where the ob­tained funds were do­nated to the doc­torSHARE, a pro­gram fo­cus­ing on pro­vid­ing free med­i­cal health ser­vices and hu­man­i­tar­ian aid.
