Binaytara Foundation Cancer Center (BTFCC) Annual Gala Dinner, the program to meet and honor the BTFCC supporters, was held on March 17, 2023. The program host was Dr. Rubina Suwal, who was able to set up Head & Neck Onco-surgery department at the BTFCC with support of Donors who joined last year’s Gala Dinner. With that support, Dr. Suwal has been able to perform some of the major surgeries of oral cavities at Janakpur. BTFCC’s Head and Neck onco-surgery department is the first in Madhesh and Dr. Rubina is the first surgeon to perform this level of surgery in Madhesh province, Nepal.
Pledge for year 2023 was to establish Poor Patient Fund that will help those who cannot afford to get surgery, chemotherapy and other services at the BTFCC. Total 20 people pledged at the program, but Poor Patient Fund is open to receive donations from all who want to save more lives. The fund will be directly mobilized by Prof. Dr. Y. P. Singh, the president of Binaytara Cancer Trust.
