About The Event

We would like to introduce our First of its Kind event in Kolkata- KIDDATHON, 2015. It’s a fund raiser event by us, Calcutta Central Ladies Circle 27. The funds raised will go for sponsorship of Chemotherapy of the children suffering from Cancer.Health and Education are two such powerful tools, which can do wonders in the lives of people! By God’s grace we are blessed with both, but millions of children in India cannot afford the medical treatment.

Childhood is a time of wishes, desires, dreams of endless possibilities. But for children faced with cancer it is a battle for and with life. In India, it is estimated that nearly 40-50,000 new childhood cancer cases are present each year and 70% children with cancer still die of disease in India due to lack of awareness, late detection and diagnosis, inadequate pediatric cancer treatment facilities, the exorbitant cost of treatment and lack of supportive care.

We have taken a step to empower these kids with better treatment for this dreaded disease. This December let our children be the tool to empower the treatment of some of those under privileged children and bring some smiles on their faces.
