CCARI gave a grant to Oasis of Hope Research Hospital for research and patient treatment. Doctors are able to continue ongoing programs of research and specialized patient treatments as a result of CCARI's grants. Over 75 different therapies have been researched in the last 30 years enabling the hospital to seek out and provide the most advanced, effective and compassionate treatments available in the world. Their new integrative program is producing fantastic results with various different types of cancer. Several patients were helped with the research.

People with diseases and illnesses

CCARI provided a shipment of medical supplies and humanitarian aid to Esperanza De Vida to be used by those in need in their children's hospital, St. Luke, and 5 other hospitals in the region, that treat childhood cancer and other degenerative diseases. The children's hospital and clinics provide much needed medical care to many of the needy and disadvantaged people of their areas; charging only the minimum amount, or in most cases nothing, for fees needed to provide the medical care. The hospitals treat more than 25,000 children each year with cancer or other related diseases. Many children's lives are saved by this compassionate program that targets mainly children in need. Thousands of children are helped each year.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

• Providing on-going funding for research and programs that advance the treatment of childhood cancer and other terminal diseases.

• Increasing our position of supplying much needed equipment, medical supplies and medicines to hospitals and clinics. These supplies will many times mean the difference between life and death for the patients of the hospitals and clinics.

• Continuing to provide emergency information to victims of cancer and their families; so that they might make an informed decision on how and where to treat their illness. In addition, to provide ongoing emotional, spiritual and financial support to victims of cancer whenever possible.

• To increase our “networking” with other medical non-profit organizations so as to increase the awareness of therapies for the treatment of cancer. The opportunities for helping individuals, especially the children, with cancer are many—the resources are limited. It will become essential to build a strong network.

Devlope our “networking” with other medical non-profit organizations so as to increase the awareness of therapies for the treatment of cancer. The opportunities for helping individuals, especially the children, with cancer are many—the resources are limited. It will become essential to build a strong network.

Our staff and volunteers are presently working to establish a platform of social media outreaches.

We have started forming a network of other non profit organizations to help us fulfill our mission.
