From the early years of founding the Society, one of MAHAK's major goals was to establish a Pediatric Cancer Hospital. A piece of land was purchased in1997, the construction started in 1999 and in March 2007, the dream came true with the inauguration of the Hospital. The highly specialized pediatric cancer hospital, which has access to the world’s latest technology in the field of pediatric cancer diagnosis and treatment, plays a vital role in the region.
By 2014,over 23,000 cancer-stricken children have covered by MAHAK and enjoy support services provided by the charity to resolve anxieties and fears about cancer diagnosis and treatment. In addition, understanding the difficulty of travelling a long distance for cancer treatment and designating a particular place as boarding house for those families who travel a far distance to reach MAHAK is one of the charity achievements.
MAHAK also adheres to its mission to completely support children with cancer and their families with the aid of the Charter of Patients’ Rights, new and efficient methods, the latest achievements of medical science, and the most up to date diagnostic, treatment and prevention methodologies.
