an Oasis, Persatuan Barah Melaka - Melaka Cancer Society a non-profit organisation, began as a promise to give hope and relief to the poor and marginalised cancer survivors in Melaka in 1982. With the passing of time, Oasis has reached out to innumerable beneficiaries through the good work of Aini Mubarak, Sr Pitchiamuthu and our many friends of Oasis.
We conduct Defensive Cancer Program and our Early Detection of Cancer Program runs free pap smear tests and mammography for the public. Public forums or symposiums are also conducted on cancer and cancer care to educate the general public. an Oasis is also a place for relief and rejuvenation for ambulant cancer survivors and their minders. At the Oasis, volunteers run cookery, laughing yoga, line dancing and handicraft sessions.
Beneficiaries of Oasis aid program face many hurdles in their lives. Where they are, the pain they experience is reflected in the faces of their loved ones who stand by them and care for them. At times, their cares may be too much but we have seen so much strength and determination in them in facing adversity, it is inspiring.
We welcome you to join us as a volunteer, member or a benefactor to give hope and aid where it is needed. All donations are tax exempted.
