  • GRANT A WISH

    We help bring a smile to our kids by responding to their wishes, whether is a trip to the park, movie theatre or meeting a celebrity. We believe each wish granted extends and rejuvenates these kids fighting cancer.

ABOUT US

Hope & Courage International (HCI) was founded in the year 2013 by a cancer survivor with the help of family and started a support group of cancer survivors with a keen focus on creating Cancer Awareness and providing support to cancer patients and their caregivers. The founder began the group with other women who were similarly undergoing cancer treatment but unfortunately along the way they all passed away.

While undergoing treatment, the Founder met and befriended a young boy aged 10 years undergoing cancer treatment at the Kenyatta Nation Hospital. He was on a wheelchair. During a conversation, the boy said that he would wish to donate his wheelchair to another deserving child in the case of his demise. This inspired the Founder to focus on establishing a haven for children battling cancer and help grant a child’s wish. HCI was registered as a Society under Section 10 of the Societies Act of Kenya in 2013.

WARRIOR STORIES

I feel beautiful for the first time...

After battling cancer for the past five years, I can now relax and breathe. My battle with cancer has been one full of ups and downs, tears and laughter but all through it has been the support of my family and friends that has brought me this far.

A STORY BY Catherine

I am grateful for being alive...

Coming from a very remote location in Burundi, access to quality medical facilities was just a dream, but through well wishers and HCI, I am now getting the best care I could ask for. Cancer has nothing on me Ha!.
