Dear Friends of Egyptian Children with Cancer,

We hope that you and your family are well. Thank you for your continuous support and generosity.  With your donations, Friends of Egyptian Children with cancer ” FECC” provides medications to treat children with cancer at no cost. Several of the medications are not available in Egypt and have to be imported.  The price of medications in Egypt is rising by the day. Many of the hospitals cannot afford them.

This year similar to last year,70% of the annual funds raised by the FECC will be sent to our sister organization in Egypt to buy the required medications and provide them to the hospitals to treat poor children at no cost.  Your donations will allow more sick children to get treated and give them an opportunity to recover and have a long, healthy and productive life.  All our board members are volunteers, we have no employees and have minimal overhead.

The FECC sponsors the pediatric oncology clinics at Borg El Arab, Alexandria, Mansoura, Nasser Institute, Ein Shams, Assiut, and El Menya university hospitals.  These clinics partially depend on the annual funds they receive from the FECC to treat the children.

We deeply appreciate your contributions and would like to thank you in advance for helping the children to get their needed medications and giving them an opportunity to recover.

The FECC is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with a tax ID number 76 – 0464279.

Your donation is tax deductible as allowed by the law.

Would you be willing to make a tax deductible donation of $25, $50, $100 or whatever you can afford to help us provide care for Egyptian children diagnosed with cancer in Egypt?

We simply can’t do it without you.  Your support will make a real, lasting impact in the lives of those who are still in need.

Funds raised by our organization are spent on programs that benefit the children of Egypt. Moreover, our board includes four physicians from world-class institutions like the MD Anderson Cancer Center and Memorial Hermann Children’s Hospitals. These physicians’ knowledge of cancer treatments in Egypt and the US is critical in making informed decisions about the medication and education programs to fund. It is important to remember those who are less fortunate than us. Please consider donating to Friends of Egyptian Children with Cancer. Due to the current economic conditions in Egypt, your help is needed more than ever!
