History of Link to Life

A group of volunteers, mainly women, who were survivors of cancer set up Link to Life NGO in the year 2002.The association started its weekly activities at the Women’ s Centre in Floreal. After its registration with the Registrar of Association in the year 2003, it also became a member of MACOSS.

In the year 2006 Link to Life submitted a request to the Government for an office building to carry out its activities. This request was approved in February 2006. Link to Life is now having an office building as from 1st March 2006 at 13 Britannia Park and carries out its support activities for cancer patients at this center.

Its main objective is to provide support and counseling to cancer patients and their families.

It started its activities by ‘L’écoute’ (listening of patients’ ordeal) at RT ward of Victoria Hospital to alleviate the trauma of the cancer patients. This activity is being carried out twice a week by a group of 15 volunteers who have received training in listening.

In the year 2006, our project for a building was approved by the Government and we were given an office building at Britannia Park, Vacoas on lease by the Government. In the last two years, Link to Life has increased its activities which are sponsored by many individuals, private firms and also by the European Union.
