The Story
The Journey
The Star Foundation in collaboration with Kfm 94.5 launched a 12-month long campaign to raise funds for Project Flamingo. The campaign will be hosted by Darren Simpson on the Kfm Mornings with Darren, Sherlin and Sibs breakfast show.

Project Flamingo is a non-profit company (NPC) that aims to improve inclusive cancer care in the South African public health sector by providing critical resources needed for breast cancer surgery.

The directors and volunteers of the project make their services available to patients in need of surgery at Groote Schuur, Tygerberg, Livingstone and Cecilia Makiwane hospitals.

Breast cancer patients who have been awaiting surgery for at least 1 year are listed at Project Flamingo to ensure a fair and objective process.

The waiting list for 2023 consists of 200 women awaiting surgery in the Western Cape and the Eastern Cape. The funds will help all these women receive life-changing surgeries.

Each surgery costs at least R6,000.

The Star Foundation will be donating R1,2 million to Project Flamingo.

The public and organizations can support Project Flamingo by sponsoring a life-saving surgery, donating pamper packs to newly diagnosed patients or volunteer to help.
