“Our head office will be open for the public on Tuesday and Thursday from 09:00 to 11:00 for collections, and strict safety conditions remain in place,” says chief executive Rolf Hansen. “We also continue dispatching to patients in other regions of the country.”

“Our interim homes will reopen on 5 May 2020 where strict safety and hygiene protocols will be again be implemented,” he says.
The Patient Financial Assistance fund for cancer patients is currently being processed and will be extended on 30 April 2020 as usual.
“We thank everyone that made a donation to the CAN fund, enabling us to continue assisting cancer patients. We also thank the community who have been diligently following the lockdown procedures and look forward to actively continue cancer as from 5 May 2020,” Hansen says.
