Cancer Association of Malawi (CAM) has said it imposes the lowest fees possible on its membership subscription with the goal to making it possible for the majority of Malawians to gain membership despite the fact that it relies on donations to carry out its services.
CAM’s Chairperson, Chifundo Chogawana said the more members CAM has the more people will be able to access information concerning issues of cancer which is the Association’s core objective.
“That is why we included a category where one is only required to pay a K500 annual fee so that even those earning very little may be able to become members,” said Chogawana.
He however, said that people who are interested to attend some of the meetings hosted by CAM’s National Governing Council (NGC) but do not have the money, are encouraged to attend and pay the membership fee when they are able to.
“We want people to know that we are not trying to block them from participating by asking them for this fee.
“We are not looking to rake in profits but as an association we also need finances to operate that is why we put the fees at the minimum as much as possible,” explained Chogawana.
CAM was established more than 16 years ago but was revamped on September 10, 2011 when a new National Governing Council (NGC) was appointed to run the Association with the guidance from a board of trustees.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
