Cancer touches so many people and sometimes it hit right at home, affecting not only the patient but it has a ripple effect to all the loved ones close to the patient from the long-term GP, the pastor, work colleagues, friends and direct close family. It is an inner emotional struggle as well as a physical one and the pain continues long after the passing of the patient, Family trying to cope with life and the void it left them while seeking emotional healing.
Skill for Life embark on cancer awareness programs, educating communities about detecting cancer early and how to deal emotionally with a loved one having cancer.
Skill for Life also support the family financially with basic needs like travelling cost to visit a loved one in hospital, toiletries, pajamas, bedding and nutrients.
Skill for Life do personal visits to the patient and the family consoling and supporting them emotionally.
Visiting the patient and chatting about everyday things, we forget that they are still living humans and must be treated as such. They still enjoy a good joke, what there is to know about the news and their favourite sports team.
Love does not cost a cent and we all have it in abundance to share with those who long for it.
They want to be touched and loved.
