HELP EACH OTHER
Only by Helping Each Other We can make the World Better
Having its seat at King George V Avenue, 3 rd Floor, Floréal, the Association, which is locally focused with a national reach, looks forward to playing a significant role in the improvements in survival rates and the standards of care for cancer patients in Mauritius.
Operating since December 2020, FMCI works closely with hospitals specialized in oncology to identify and provide support to cancer fighters, celebrate cancer survivors, honour the taken, and never give up hope to patients and their close ones.
Indeed, FMCI provides patients suffering from any cancer type, with financial support for medical treatment locally or abroad. The Association will also purchase medical equipment that will be donated to hospitals for the upscaling of treatment facilities.

FMCI is committed to delivering the targets of the World Cancer Declaration. It is foreseen that the death toll will increase to 16.3 million per year by 2040 (Source: Globocan 2020 and Cancer Tomorrow, IARC). Thus, FMCI embraces the battle against cancer through strategic partnerships involving members and other institutions interested in fighting cancer. It aims to save lives by focusing on what needs to be done, by building capacity to meet local needs.
Among the planned activities of FMCI to contribute to World Cancer day, running person-to-person exchanges, such as awareness campaigns, workshops, & conferences about cancer, early cancer detection & cancer prevention around the island are on agenda. The Falcon Memorial Cancer Institute will be coming forward with other activities as a drive to call for action.
