Fundraising For We Are TLM
Latest Update !!

TLM chemo, drugs and essentials come from abroad. Covid-19 means higher costs and lower supplies, threatening children's chances of survival


Tumaini La Maisha (Hope for Life) operates from our Hub at Muhimbili National Hospital in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Their Lives Matter UK and Ireland are our sister NGOs that support with advocacy and fundraising. At our Hub in Muhimbili Hospital we treat hundreds of children with cancer every year.

Inspired by photographs of our childhood cancer survivors holding their hospital admittance image, the #WeAreTheVillage campaign reminds us that to go far, we must go together. It was not one doctor, one medication or one nurse that helped our little friends to grow big and strong, but the whole team: the village.

Dr Trish Scanlan is a paediatric oncologist from Ireland and CEO of Tumaini La Maisha Tanzania. In 2006, ispired by the dedication of Tanzanian colleagues despite a crippling lack of medical supplies, she was determined to help. Thirteen years later we have seen survival rates go from less than 10% to over 50% in that time and numbers of kids treated from 120-720! We are asking for your help in these uncertain times of Covid-19 to ensure children's cancer services are not interrupted during this crisis. Children with cancer continue to need our help no matter what else is happening in our crazy world.
