Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Cancer Aid and Prevention Fund was established to measure the Cancer preventing effect of providing impoverished families a diet that is predominately Fruits and Vegetables thru a food assistance program providing only fruits and vegetables. Because these families are dependent on the Fruits and Vegetables that are provided them. This unique situation will allow us to do a long term study of the Cancer prevention effects of a diet rich in Fruits and Vegetables. Scientific research concludes that the best diet for preventing prostate cancer is one that is low in fat and high in vegetables and fruits. Overall, one-third of the most common cancers could be prevented.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

Cancer Aid and Prevention Fund provides Medical Supplies to Organizacion Christiana De Beneficio Social Esperanza De Vida Children's Hospital (St. Lukes) which serves over 12,000 patients annually with services provided 24 hours every day: These supplies are used in providing medical care for their Baby Rescue program where 3,000 children on the brink of starvation are brought to the St. Lukes Hospital annually. These sick children are found in some of the most remote areas of Guatemala and are transported by burro, canoe and truck. Many stay at the St. Lukes Nutritional Center for weeks, others are abandoned by their parents and are given a home in the children's home, and some have dire needs that they must be sent to far away hospitals in an effort to save their lives.

Charting impact

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

Cancer Aid and Prevention Fund was established to measure the Cancer preventing effect of providing impoverished families a diet that is predominately Fruits and Vegetables thru a food assistance program providing only fruits and vegetables. Because these families are dependent on the Fruits and Vegetables that are provided them.

Overall, one-third of the most common cancers could be prevented.

Cancer Aid and Prevention Fund collaborates with a host site (Church, School or civic group) who provides between 20 and 40 volunteers and identify people in the community who will come and select up to 60 lbs of produce that they will deliver to people they have identified who are in need.

A semi load of 7 to 15 varieties of fresh fruits and vegetables is set up on tables where the community agents can select the produce they will distribute to people in need in their community.
