The Gold September campaign is a time to recognize the children and adolescents affected by cancer at global and African scale. During September, and throughout the year, we honour the children and young people fighting cancer, the families who care for them, the healthcare professionals and their caregivers, the survivors, the children who lost their lives, and the scientists dedicated to beating childhood cancer.

The Gold Ribbon is the universal symbol to create awareness of childhood cancer – literally, to ‘shine the light’ on these young patients and their specific and often unmet care and research needs. The Gold September campaign has been initiated by parents, patients, and survivors directly affected by childhood cancer and have become a broadly endorsed initiative with global presence.  

Show your commitment to children with cancer by: 

  • Lighting iconic buildings, historic landmarks, monuments, bridges, and natural environments in Gold  
  • Decorating these landmarks with Gold Ribbons  
  • Wearing Gold Ribbon pins at public and media engagements  
  • other activities marked with the Gold Ribbon and Gold Light symbols

Let us know if you have scheduled any activity related to this event.

Best regards

SIOP Africa secretary
