CCC Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation based in Sri Lanka and Australia to provide services to those suffering from cancer and to promote one’s mental well-being. CCC Foundation was established in 2003 to assist the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in Maharagama to provide support for children fighting cancer.
The CCC Foundation operates and maintains the CCC House, a 188-bed cancer transit home for outpatients at the NCI. Situated inside the premises of the Cancer Institute to accommodate outpatients, it is the largest facility of its kind for children and their guardians as well as for adult outpatients who are suffering from cancer in Sri Lanka.
To tackle the high rate of suicide in Sri Lanka, the CCC Foundation also offers a free telephone counselling service. By dialing 1333, CCC helpline number, callers can speak to trained telephone counsellors who are willing to listen and assist.
