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.
“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.
“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
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.

We are Christians, we are cancer survivors, we are chaplains and we are educators. We love dedicating our time to serve our community. Pure and undefiled religion before our God and Father is this: to care for orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
