|Hadhramout Cancer Foundation|
There is the Hadhramout Cancer Foundation (HFC): set up about six years ago; it is a charitable trust funded by well wishers and philanthropists in Hadhramawt and around the region. And there is the Hadhramout Cancer Society, which helps in the raising of funds and the building of awareness against the disease. Especially awareness on breast cancer. Seminars, workshops and campaigns are organized and promoted to inform people on cancer; and the dangers of tobacco and smoking; and the chewing of qat. Although Hadhramaut lacks proper resources and facilities in handling and managing the disease, philanthropists and well wishers in the province and in the region have made it possible for cancer patients - not only in Hadhramout, but in neighboring provinces too - to get assistance and feel very hopeful.
