LottoStar in support of The Star Foundation is collaborating with Kfm 94.5 on a 12-month campaign to raise funds for Project Flamingo.
The campaign commenced in October 2022 and will end in November 2023.
Project Flamingo is a non-profit company that strives to improve inclusive cancer care in the South African public health sector by providing the scarce resources needed for breast cancer surgery. Surgeries are done by selfless doctors who volunteer their time, every Saturday.
They avail themselves to patients who need surgery at the following hospitals – Groote Schuur, Tygerberg, Livingstone and Cecilia Makiwane hospitals.
Women diagnosed with breast cancer who have been awaiting surgery for at least 1 year are listed as future recipients of Project Flamingo. This is to ensure that the process is fair.
The waiting list for 2023 consists of 200 women from the Eastern Cape and Western Cape awaiting surgery.
Each surgery costs at least R6,000.
LottoStar’s The Star Foundation will be donating R1,2 Million to Project Flamingo which will go towards all 200 women receiving life-changing surgery.
The individuals and corporations can support Project Flamingo by sponsoring a life-changing surgery, donating pamper packs to newly diagnosed patients or volunteer to help.
