IMA’s partner, Tumaini la Maisha, or TLM, is a Tanzanian-based NGO working with a network of children’s oncology centers, coordinated through Muhimbili National Hospital, the Ocean Road Cancer Institute and the Tanzanian Ministry of Health. They work to provide access to all aspects of pediatric oncology care. TLM runs clinical and non-clinical programs in the process of providing treatment to children with cancer. The non-clinical program includes school, play therapy, nutrition, and skill programs for the parents/caregivers, all provided free of charge.
Providing TLM and Muhimbili hospital with a new bio-safety cabinet is critical in saving more children’s lives from BL and many other childhood cancers treated there.
Catonsville Presbyterian Church, in Catonsville, Maryland, has been a longtime supporter of IMA. This new effort will save lives and help IMA get one step closer to achieving its vision of health, healing and well-being for all.
