MAKNA’s Bursary Assistance Programme assists financially-challenged patients with a monthly allowance, medical equipment, medication and ancillary items to enable them to cope with cancer.
To ensure a smooth implementation of this programme, MAKNA receives cooperation from Medical Social Work Department based in government hospitals. These officers screen applications and gather relevant information from their cancer patients. Once gathered, the documents will be forwarded to MAKNA for assessment. If they meet set standards, patients will eventually receive the amount of financial assistance needed.
