Kenyan Woman Giving Dignity to Cancer Patients

29-year-old Millicent Kagonga has been volunteering to take care of cancer patients within the slums, regardless of the type of cancer they suffer from, age and gender through Symbol of Hope, an organisation she founded. She cleans, cooks and ensures that her 40 cancer patients residing in Kariobangi, Korogocho, Dandora and other estates within Nairobi's Eastlands area have eaten before they take their medication.
