This Gala supports the Binaytara Foundation Cancer Center in Nepal. The Binaytara Foundation Cancer Center was established in December 2018 in Janakpur, Nepal -a city in Nepal’s Province 2 (the most populous of all 7 provinces with nearly 6 million residents).
Before the BTFCC was established, there were no cancer centers providing the much needed cancer care to people of this region. Residents had to travel at least 6 hours to the centers in province 3 (which is the only province where all comprehensive cancer centers are located in Nepal).
With the establishment of the BTFCC in December 2018, we have been able to provide cancer prevention, early detection, chemotherapy treatment, radiotherapy services, 24-hour emergency care, in-patient care, and palliative care services to patients in this region.
We anticipate the BTFCC to provide care to nearly 20,000 patients from Nepal’s province 2, province 1 and nearby Indian state of Bihar annually. With your support, we will be able to save thousands of lives every year.
