A FORMIDABLE VOICE IN THE

Childhood Cancer, Advocacy Sphere

Okapi Children Cancer Foundation (OCCF) is a Non-Governmental Organization formed in 2017 by a group of friends with a shared common passion for humanitarian deeds.  OCCF was formerly known as friends for a cause (2017 – 2018). In September 2019 the group was registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission of Nigeria as a Non-profit/Non-Governmental organization.

The foundation was set up to assist children battling cancer and be a formidable voice in the childhood cancer advocacy sphere. OCCF currently supports children receiving treatment in recognized public hospitals with Oncology Services in Abuja, Nigeria without reference to creed, religion, or ethnic affiliations. It is our hope to expand the scope of coverage in the future.

Over the period in which we have been operational, we have intervened in over 200 cases of children receiving treatment for different types of Cancer. Some of these Children are survivors of Cancer following our intervention and are living normal lives.

With your support we hope to extend our reach to save more Nigerian children.

Our motto: Give Hope, Share Love
