They have been installed in the main lobbies of the clinical departments and waiting rooms of the medical examination departments in three K Hospital branches. The association will provide books and other literature about cancer on a weekly basis.

The aim is to encourage patients and their relatives to read about cancer research and treatment. Every bookshelf will have books, magazines, newspapers and brochures on cancer. People can read them for free and return them to the shelves after.

This initiative hopes to equip patients and their families with more information regarding cancer treatment, nutrition and mental health care.
