Raising Awareness for Early Detection, Improved Treatment & Social Acceptance

ASHIC, Foundation for Childhood Cancer, is a non-profit organization in Bangladesh, serving the needs of children living with cancer. It was started in 1994 by Afzal & Salma Choudhury, after the untimely demise of their son Ashiq Husain Choudhury, who was only 3 years 3 months and 3 days old when he died of cancer after a year-long treatment in London.


Through the last 30+ years of service, ASHIC is now considered a center of excellence for pediatric oncology in South Asia, contributing directly to improved treatment services and better survival rates.
