What is CHICA NAMIBIA all about?

Children with Cancer in Namibia or Children Fighting Cancer in Namibia – CHICA is the children’s focus wing that resides under the umbrella of the Cancer Association of Namibia. It was formed to foster increased public awareness and bring knowledge of childhood cancer warning signs to the general public. We also try to support by offering emotional and financial support to enhance the quality of life of cancer patients and their families.

What is House Acacia?

Acacia House was established in 1986 with 9 beds at John Meinert Street, Windhoek West.  The exclusive purpose of this interim house was to accommodate out of town cancer patients (mainly from rural areas) undergoing treatment at the Dr AB May Cancer Treatment Centre.
