“We wanted to remain in our office and so finding another organisation to share with us has been the perfect solution”
World Child Cancer, the leading international children’s charity, are dedicated to improving diagnosis, treatment and support for children with cancer in low and middle-income countries around the world. Working with partners in 13 different countries across the globe, they have supported over 40,000 children and their families.
“Our office is a large overhead and with only being in the office twice per week, it did not make sense financially to have it sitting empty for half the week. We wanted to remain in our office and so finding another organisation to share with us has been the perfect solution.”
“As a charity working with children with cancer, the demand on our services is ever-increasing. We therefore need to ensure that we spend our funds effectively to make sure as much money as possible can be spent on children with cancer.”
Renting out your space for just two days each week can halve your total office costs. We were excited to work alongside World Child Cancer to fill their office on the days they weren’t using it, allowing them to put more money back into the charity and use this for research and training amongst much more.
“With the funds we have saved on our office costs, we have been able to ensure continued funding to some of the country programmes where otherwise we may have had to cease funding due to lack of funds.”
“For example, in Myanmar where not only have people been affected by Covid but also the military coup, public hospitals have been closed which has severely impacted the ability of families to find treatment for their children with cancer. We have been able to ensure children continue to be diagnosed and receive treatment for their cancer, thereby giving them a chance to the cancer may be cured.”
“In Cameroon, we have been able to ensure that frontline staff continue to be trained in the early warning signs of cancer so that children can receive an early diagnosis and therefore have a better prognosis. In Malawi, we have been able to pay for a play therapist to help children through their cancer treatment and to ensure families receive the support they need.”
