This year's campaign

Every year The Cows™ select a range of projects that give real meaning to the phrase 'supporting children with cancer'. Our donation is aligned with the requirements of CHOC as dictated by their business strategy. This year The Cows have selected a range of worthy projects for your donations to be used in a meaningful way.

Accommodation - The CHOC Lodge, Durban; CHOC Houses Saxonwold, Diepkloof and Pretoria

The houses/lodges are an essential part of the CHOC programme as without these homes away from home many patients opt to abandon treatment because of the great distances they need to travel. The Cows shall assist with the costs of running the Durban Lodge as well as the houses in Saxonwold and Diepkloof.

Psychosocial Support - Gauteng, Eastern Cape and Free State

Psychosocial support is imperative to the families and children affected by childhood cancer. CHOC currently employs five Social workers and 2 Social Auxillary workers, situated in the Paediatric Oncology treatment centers, who assist with all aspects of the illness from diagnoses onwards including palliative and bereavement support. Once again, The Cows will provide funding for the salaries of these professionals.

Programme Coordinator - Western Cape and Namakwa Region

Due to the vast geographical area of the region, the increase in the number of beneficiaries, and the small amount of staff members employed by CHOC in the Western Cape there is a requirement for an additional staff member to service the entire area. The Cows will provide funding for the salary and costs of a new Programme Coordinator for the region.

Programme vehicle - CHOC Kalahari

At the beginning of 2015, the position for a new programme office opened in the Kalahari covering the raising of awareness for Early Warning Signs of childhood cancer in the area and will ensure practical support such as the provision of food parcels for families travelling through Upington to Bloemfontein and Cape Town etc. The office requires a programme vehicle which The Cows will fund.

Essential maintenance to CHOC Houses -Pietermaritzburg, Pretoria and Port Elizabeth

To keep the CHOC Houses up to the correct standard, maintenance needs to be carried out on the houses.  The Cows will cover the costs of maintenance to the PMB, Pretoria and Port Elizabeth houses.
