For your information our society is one of the most respected & trusted NGOs of its kind & received three international awards in 2010 Ethiopian Calendar alone and received another Warrior Against Cancer award last August 28,2019 in Durban, South Africa. Please find attached herewith details of the awards for your information. I know you know you have some information about our society, still I send you more information on who we are, have been doing & trying to achieve.
A very warm greeting from all of us here at Mathiwos Wondu-YeEthiopia Cancer Society/MWECS/.
I am a father of Mathiwos, our third and youngest son, who died 15 years ago from leukemia (ALL type) and for whom our Society – the “Mathiwos Wondu-YeEthiopia Cancer Society” – is named.
I joined the war on cancer just after I lost my beloved son. A Human Resources Manager by profession with more than 30 years of experience in Human Resources and Personnel Administration, I was one of 15 founding members of our Cancer Society and presently serve as its Executive Director/General Manager/.
I can’t tell you how much cancer affected my family: emotionally, physically and financially. I don’t have the proper words to tell you how much we all miss our beloved son Mathiwos. Mathy changed our life in many ways; he was handsome, active and strong. We very much enjoyed the 51 months we had together and we have nothing to complain about, but we pray that our fellow human beings will never experience what we have been through.
As you may agree, we human beings are not born to live on this earth forever; life may at times seem very long, but it is in fact very short and expensive to waste. We believe that we will meet Mathy again when our time on this earth is finished. We came to realize that forming a cancer society and trying to help our fellow cancer patients in whatever way we can and challenge the growing burden of cancer here in Ethiopia would be one of the best ways to remember our beloved son, his friends, and his cause, and to express our thanks to God for all the opportunities He gave us to help our son in every way humanly possible, leaving the rest to the will of God.
Please find attached herewith press release on Mathy, summary of recent developments, news of awards & NCDI report for your information & evaluation.
Looking forward to working with you in our joint effort intended to save lives of our people from needlessly affected & dying from partially preventable & treatable non-communicable diseases & contribute our fair share in transforming our great country Ethiopia in to a better place to live & work.
