Shabana had a difficult life, an unsupportive husband and no proper home. She struggled to make ends meet. Her one-and-a-half-year-old daughter Aliya was her only hope in life.**Her life fell apart when Aliya was diagnosed with Will’s Tumor, a type of kidney cancer that was caused because she was malnourished.** Her husband abandoned them when he found out about Aliya.Shabana was left to take care of her daughter alone. She did not understand the treatment Aliya needed and had no income to provide for her. Cuddles helped Shabana by enrolling her in the monthly ration program. **This program gave Shabana a standard package of rations every month.** They also gave meals and nutrition supplements to her daughter in the hospital. This steady supply of nutrition helped Aliya’s treatment work effectively on her body and **today she is cancer-free!****Close to 90% of children with cancer who are from poor families are malnourished at diagnosis.** Nutrition is key during treatment of cancer. Having proper meals or supplements while being treated gives children the strength needed to undergo the treatment.Your donation can help parents like Shabana give their children a fighting chance at life.

About The Program

Cuddles foundation through this program works on providing holistic nutrition to underprivileged children suffering from cancer.Most cancer affected children from low socioeconomic background are malnourished at diagnosis. We’ve noticed that families that move to other cities for treatment of their children don’t have enough to eat due to financial constraints - they’ve often left their jobs and mortgaged their assets to barely afford treatment and stay in the big city. This affects the child’s daily calorie intake, her ability to fight cancer, and worsens the family’s financial situation. The chances of abandoning treatment are very high without additional support for the family.Cuddles Ration Program provides a family of four with adequate monthly ration. This ensures that the child is provided with wholesome meals at home, enabling her to fight cancer better. We prioritize families that belong to low-income groups and have come from outstation locations for their child’s treatment.The families are given monthly ration supplies including flour, rice, all types of dal, oil, spices, salt, seeds, ghee among other essential food items.Ration baskets are given at the hospitals or through a coupon system tied up with predetermined vendors.When you donate to this program, you will help provide the much-needed support to families of underprivileged children suffering from cancer.
