Our Impact

Since January 2023, Sudan Children’s Cancer Organization (SCCO) has initiated a critical mission to provide early and comprehensive care for pediatric cancer patients by opening a unit to treat patients in Daman Hospital- Marawe Health care City. Recognizing the pivotal role of timely intervention in improving outcomes, SCCO has implemented new protocols for cancer diagnosis and standardized chemotherapy treatments. These efforts are supported by rigorous investigations and diagnostic work-ups aimed at early detection and intervention.

SCCO’s commitment extends beyond treatment protocols. The organization has prioritized training for pediatric oncologists, ensuring specialized care for young patients. Collaborations with international partners in the US and Saudi Arabia have facilitated consultations and the adoption of best practices in pediatric oncology.

Despite challenges stemming from regional conflict, SCCO has made significant strides in treating approximately 235 children affected by cancer. Regrettably, interruptions in treatment due to war have resulted in complications for some patients, including relapses. Nevertheless, early outcomes indicate promising results, with several children achieving remission under SCCO’s care.

As SCCO continues its vital work, the organization remains dedicated to enhancing survival rates and quality of life for pediatric cancer patients through early intervention and comprehensive treatment strategies
