Background

Faraja Cancer Support Trust was founded in 2010 with the aim of providing emotional, practical and healing support to anyone affected by cancer.

Working alongside several institutions and hospitals such as Moving Cultures and Kenyatta National, Faraja offers cancer patients and their carers conventional treatments like radiotherapy, chemotherapy and complementary therapies like counselling. They wish to take their patients beyond medical treatment through offering them a holistic approach to cope with the challenges of cancer.

The objectives of the mission was:

  • To offer training and experiential highlighting the inherent therapeutic benefits of arts
  • Implement visual journaling as a self-care tool
  • Guide and supervise the trainees in their work with children, supporting the inculcation of arts in their practice
  • The exploratory trip aims to link up with medical professionals in Kenya to explore the benefits of Arts Therapy for children undergoing cancer treatment.
