The Binaytara Foundation Cancer Center hosted a gala dinner on March 17, 2023, on the sidelines of the International Cancer Congress, and raised 396,001 Nepali Rupees for the patient assistance program. The funds will be used to address the financial challenges of patients receiving cancer care.
“The fund will help us provide subsidized care, including surgery and chemotherapy, for patients who are experiencing financial hardship. Many patients who need major surgeries forego treatment because of financial constraints, which is unfortunate. We hope to be able to serve more patients with the help of donor support.”Hospital Administrator, Gamala Luitel
The Binaytara Foundation seeks to minimize disparities by improving access to cancer care. The majority of patients at the Binaytara Foundation Cancer Center receive financial assistance.
“The donors’ support will allow us to help more patients access cancer care without compromising the quality of care. We are thankful to our donors.” Dr. Binay Shah said.
