Go colour crazy for CAN

12 February 2020 | Society

The Cancer Association of Namibia’s annual Spray a Thon 2020 starts on Saturday, 29 February 2020 in Windhoek and Swakopmund and runs for the entire March to the benefit of young Namibians fighting cancer.
“Funky coloured heads during March is the game, and saving lives is our aim!” says CAN’s CEO, Rolf Hansen.
Schools, corporates, family and friends are invited to support the hair spraying fun.
Donations are earmarked for the CHICA (Children Fighting Cancer in Namibia) programme that supports the CHICA Interim Home for childhood cancer patients, and also aids the Children’s Paediatric Ward (8 West of Windhoek Central Hospital).
In addition to this support, the CHICA Fund also assists childhood cancer patients financially, having paid out N$185 000 towards medical co-payments, formula milk and transportation to ensure that minor patients get treated timely in 2019.
