Teurai Chanakira, is the founder of ELIZABETH CHANAKIRA CANCER TRUST. The Trust is a non profit organisation that supports marginalized cancer patients in Zimbabwe & provides practical, nutritional tools for better health. ECCT aims to eventually expand to help Africans in other countries in Africa and Zimbabweans/minority groups internationally.

Cancer is now the leading cause of death globally and the World Health Organisation states that at least 70% of cancer deaths occur in developing countries. Latest statistics from the Zimbabwe National Cancer Registry show that cancer is a disease killing more Zimbabweans  than HIV/AIDS, yet there is limited assistance for cancer patients and their families, minimal media interest, limited public awareness and knowledge of the disease.
