Nutifafa Shelter’s mission is to redeem the love of God by accompanying the sick in the exercise of faith in God for the fulfillment of the promise of healing and to give hope to children and orphans of parents who died of cancer.


In Africa, more than a million people (1,082,172) developed cancer in 2020.  Of those, 711,429 people lost the battle and died. (from most recent Global Cancer Observatory reports)


Nutifafa Shelter’s African initiative intervenes in the prevention of and the fight against chronic diseases like cancer. We advocate for education and work to improve the living conditions of children whose parents suffer from cancer or have died from cancer. It is imperative that we continue to raise awareness about cancer diseases, especially among women and girls.


How we impact the community


“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge…” –Hosea 4:6


We partner with children whose parents have cancer. Nshelter helps them in school and in their professional training with supplies, support, and learning aids.

  • As a priority initiative, we host training workshops on chronic diseases like cancer. 
  • We educate young people and adults about the signs and symptoms of cancer diseases regardless of gender, race, age, and beliefs.  
  • Very soon, we will sponsor annual mammograms for the most at-risk patients. If you want to partner with our mammograms campaign in Africa, please email contact@nshleter.org)

Our cancer care ministry


If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, and one of you say unto them, depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?”  –James 2:15-16

  • We facilitate monthly prayer meetings. Prayer is powerful, and doctors believe it can start the healing process. 
  • Our chaplain team is committed to visiting patients in treatment centers. 
  • We provide groceries, women’s accessories, rent assistance, and other resources on a case-by-case basis.
  • We make home visits when a family needs help.

These home and clinical counseling sessions are precious as they enable us to learn the patient’s needs and customize significant solutions and practical support for each family and patient.
