Plant For Life

Plant For Life



Although there has been a lot of positive change in the treatment and survival of patients with cancer, the diagnosis still leads to much pain, heartache, fear and at least for a while, can be a complete life changer, not only for the one who get it but also for those who are related to the patient. The heart of this mission is to restore the beautiful smiles and happiness in the faces, souls and lives of the little patients served by TLM as well as their families.

Kibubu Campaign

Kibubu Campaign

Kibubu/ Money boxes are flat pack cardboard awareness and fundraising boxes designed by TLM and distributed to school children. Each Kibubu Box represents a child in Tanzania who develops cancer each year. Kibubu boxes are delivered to schools, each with their own serial number and registration form where participants can set a fundraising goal, write a message to the children on the ward and keep track of donations if they wish to do. Kibubu campaigns have raised over $75,000 for TLM since the first campaign in 2019.
