10 children a day in Tanzania develop cancer

9 out of 10 children lost their battle with cancer before we started ours

Survival rates have increased 4 fold since we started ...

but we have a long way to go

TLM will not stop until we reach every child in Tanzania

We Are TLM (Their Lives Matter / Tumaini La Maisha)

Who we are...
Tumaini La Maisha/ Their Lives Matter Ireland/ Their Lives Matter UK


We are a group of charities based in Tanzania, Ireland & UK with the united aim to reach every child in Tanzania who develops cancer, and treat them with high quality cancer treatment free of charge with the hope for a continued and healthy life.


A night to bring together all our wonderful supporters who have had an untold impact on TLM's ability to reduce the number of children suffering from cancer in Tanzania. We are hoping to have some inspiring discussions to generate new ideas for fundraising, events and ways to increase TLM's visibility.

If you would like to join us on this night please RSVP here.


Our Give Every Month club helps build a team of partners who contribute each month to make a difference to all the children in need. To support the mission click the button below.

We Are TLM are so fortunate this year to team up with the supremely talented Sarah Markes who has created a beautiful calendar full of completely new drawings of Tanzanian street scenes to celebrate TLM reaching our 10th year caring for children with cancer in Tanzania. 

Below is a preview of the calendar and the wonderful story it tells.
