GEKA supports CHICA

24 November 2020 | Society

GEKA Pharma recommitted its support against the fight on childhood cancer by donating N$150 000 towards the CHICA Interim Home for childhood cancer patients of the Cancer Association of Namibia (CAN). This donation enables CAN to accommodate childhood cancer patients and a parent on a complimentary basis, including three meals a day and transportation during treatment in Windhoek. The house can currently accommodate up to 10 patients per night.
