'We Are TLM' represents a group of International organisations with a shared vision and mission;
'To provide free and curative care for every child with cancer in Tanzania'.
Before the fight against children’s cancer in Tanzania began in 2004, 9 out of 10 children with cancer lost their lives. Survival rates of those presenting for treatment have gone from around 5% to 65% in the last number of years. We will not stop however, until we reach every child in Tanzania and give them a chance at survival equal to that of patients in resource rich settings.
The Tanzanian based NGO's name, Tumaini La Maisha, means hope for life. In the UK and in Ireland the NGO is called Their lives matter.
Although registered separately all three work collaboratively with a single purpose.
