We have made huge steps when looking at where we started as we are happy to have volunteers from as far away as Canada, Great Britain and some West African countries. But we need more volunteers to make these trips much more exciting than we have ever had.
The First Lady of Busia county, has been instrumental in the success of the Cancer awareness program that started in 2014 in collaboration with Cancel Cancer Africa. We will not give up on Africa, Africa needs all of us. It is the little steps that we take, that makes all the difference. To volunteer, kindly register and we will gladly contact you. It is very important that those people we were examined over the last 24 months be reviewed. Our task for this program is to revisit the people who presented early signs and symptoms.
What do we do: We support the local health officers in educating the local people on the early Signs and Symptoms of Breast Cancer while teaching them how to carry out self-examinations. We share informative literature with pictures. We conduct surveys to help us understand the trends and assist the Government make progress. Over our last two visits we have been able to educate and survey over 3000 people.
