"On behalf of our foundation, it is our humble wish that we give out what will help to serve lives...we believe that health is an important aspect for human development," said Ms Rachel Carp Head of Mo Dewiji Foundation.

TLM Board Chairperson Mr Gerald Mongella expressed gratitude to the foundation for the support to children suffering from cancer.

"Our organization has been facilitating the treatment of children suffering from childhood cancer across the country ... we call upon other well wishers to continue supporting the treatment of the children," he said.
