Chemokaspar is a beautiful little book originally created by the ICCCPO group. It gently and simply explains chemotherapy to children. It was translated into KiSwahili and is available here to be downloaded free for any KiSwahili speaking groups.

It follows the journey of Moyo, a little bear with cancer as he and his Mum attend Upendo ward for treatment. It is available in both English and Swahili.
