The Igazi Foundation

South Africa is a country with a shortage of haematologists, haematological support, advocacy and services. As the only dedicated Haematological Services NGO in Southern Africa, the Igazi Foundation lobbies Government to improve existing haematological services and facilities for patients, their families and health professionals. 

Established in 2010, the Foundation has become Internationally recognised as a champion of Haematology issues in resource-restricted areas. Igazi is a member of the Presidential Health Summit, contributing to the broader struggle for Universal Health in South Africa.

A major fundraiser for the foundation this year is the Virtual Algoa FM Big Walk for Cancer.  As the Eastern Cape’s biggest charity event,  presented by the Eastern Cape Department of Health, it will be hosted virtually this year due to the COVID-19 restrictions.

All funds raised will go to the Igazi Foundation, which will use the money to purchase much-needed equipment for the treatment of blood cancer cases in the Eastern Cape.

Participants are encouraged to dress in pink and take a 5km walk around their neighbourhoods on Saturday, 31 October, in support of everyone who has been affected by cancer.

“For the first time, this legacy event reaches beyond the city. Together with those affected by cancer, we will be able to celebrate every step on the road to recovery and healing, anywhere in Algoa Country,” says Algoa FM marketing manager Lesley Geyer.
