On behalf of my brother I wish to thank the NCF for this generous contribution towards his surgery.I also pray that they continue to assist people in their time of need.This will go a very long way.Once again I thank you
With heartfelt thanks,I was very much relieved and elated,when i received the funds from the NCF. Your help for the CT Scan of the brain was tremendous and appreciative.The fund gave me that sense of normalcy.The feeling is great.Thank you NCF for holding our hands and guiding us along the way.
I needed to have an emergency medical procedure performed overseas and just couldn't afford to cover the full expense. NCF was able to come through for me. Thank you so much.
NCF gave valuable assistance to me when I needed urgent medical attention. I don't know how I would have survived without them.
