Re-affirming its commitment to the fight against cancer, Namibian Community Trust recently donated N$50 000 to the Cancer Association of Namibia for the betterment of patients.

“Our aim at the Namibian Community Trust is to make an impact on the fight against cancer. It is for this reason we saw the need to back this project geared towards assisting patients and their families,” said Anne-Marie Molatudi of the trust.

Cancer diagnoses are on the increase in the country and the trust is happy that treatment plans and assistance to those in need can be better provided for, thus saving more lives.

“Cancer touches the lives of any person, no matter race, age, gender, financial or educational background,” said CAN's chief executive Rolf Hansen.

He thanked Namibian Community Trust for their support and said that the donation will be used to purchase food for the cancer patients staying at House Acacia.

Namibian Community Trust (formerly Namsov Community Trust) has contributed more than N$1 million towards CAN since 1991.
