World Health Organization (WHO) stated that cancer is a leading cause of death for children, with more than 300,000 new cases diagnosed each year among children aged 0-19 years. Children cancer patients in Indonesia are also increasing in recent years. Yayasan Kanker Anak Indonesia (YKAI), or the Indonesian Child Cancer Foundation, stressed that every year children cancer patients are increasing for seven percent and most of them come from underprivileged families.

This year, Sekolah Pelita Harapan (SPH) Kemang Village Moms Fellowship have the opportunity to collaborate with YKAI and serve children who are fighting cancer and in need of financial support. The founder of YKAI is Sallyana Sorongan (Ibu Sally) who was an SPH Kemang Village parent, thus making the collaboration possible.

On Monday, February 25, 2019, SPH KV Moms Fellowship held the Movie Day Out at Lippo Mall Kemang with children cancer patients from YKAI. The event was started with breakfast and magic show at PappaRich restaurant. It followed by watching “Keluarga Cemara” movie together at the XXI. Most importantly, SPH KV Moms Fellowship has raised more than 100 million Rupiahs to be donated for YKAI’s children cancer medical treatment.

For more than seven years, YKAI has helped many families with children cancer and raised people’s awareness on children cancer in Indonesia. We hope that through this collaboration, SPH Kemang Village community can bless many children cancer patients so that they will receive the best treatment for their better future ahead.
