Our halfway houses provide short-term accommodation for patients and their caregivers travelling away from home for treatment.

Patients can have a comfort stay to rest after undergoing the treatment without having to worry about the cost of travel.

MAKNA hopes to launch Halfway Houses in Malaysia to provide temporary accommodation to cancer patients seeking treatment. These houses will be located near government hospitals that provide radiotherapy and chemotherapy services, with hopes of providing a more cosy and comfortable atmosphere for patients
