Mathiwos Wondu -YeEthiopia Cancer Society (MWECS) was established by the first General Assembly meeting of the founding members of the Society held on April 17, 2004 (Miazia 9th 1996E.C) and now it is fourteen years old.Our Society is non-governmental and non-profit making organization that is dedicated to the national control of cancer and aspires to support all cancer patients in Ethiopia, but due to weak organizational and financial position, we are focusing our main attention on pediatric cancer. There were 15 members when the Society was formed and today the number of members has increased to 350 and it is expected to reach 500 soon. The number of members has to increase even further in order to challenge the growing burden of cancer in Ethiopia in a very meaningful way.Mathiwos Wondu-YeEthiopia Cancer Society (MWECS) is one of the four NGOs working on cancer and the only one specializing in pediatric cancer. The society is actively working in so many cancer related activities particularly in enhancing the awareness of society of cancer, its prevention and treatment possibilities. In addition to these, our society has been ardently working to improve treatment condition and helping to decrease the suffering of pediatric cancer patients and increase their survival rate.
