Rahma Cancer Patient Care Society

Cancer Patient Care Society (CPCS) – Rahma

Rahma aims to offer care, services and information to help cancer patients receive treatment and information about cancer, while educating the community regarding the types, causes and prevention of cancer. It also aims to provide financial and psychological support to patients both during and after treatment, and to mobilize human and financial resources to deliver this support. Furthermore, the Society seeks to build a comprehensive database of the best hospitals and medical centers in the world specialized in treating cancer detailing their locations, contact details and the types of treatment they offer.
