About CANADIAN FRIENDS OF ANIQUEM HEALTH DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION

Typically ANIQUEM patients are very poor – CAFA programmes provide support Including:

CAFA transport program provides transport (bus fare and meal) for patient and caregiver to come to clinic on regular basis without which many patients could not afford to visit the clinic at all

CAFA Recreation program provides 3-day camps for up to 50 burn survivors providing friendly camp surroundings where the children can relax, socialize 'and just be kids'. This is an important event in their psychological recovery.

CAFA has a scholarship program to help keep burn survivors in school. Often scarring can cause stigmatization or bullying and when coupled with poverty that limits purcahase of necessary supplies the kids do not want to go to school. CAFA supports kids thorugh post sexciondary education. None of these particular students would be in school without CAFA support. 

CAFA capacity building supports local or international specialised training to improve skills of staff

CAFA Social Services provides for emergency food supplies.
