On Saturday 5th October 2019 lady members of the Club braved the heavy downpour of rain to mark ‘PINK OCTOBER’ month, the Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
They held a breast cancer awareness talk at St Elizabeth Preparatory School, the outskirts of Nyali. The talk was facilitated by an Oncologist, Dr. Zainab Zulkikar who educated the schoolgirls & their mothers on breast cancer, causes & how to do a Breast Cancer Self Examination (BSE) using powerpoint presentation. The same was translated in Swahili by Ms. Caren Jacobet.
Each participant was then given a flier/bookmark on BSA in order to go out & be ambassadors of change spreading the word on early detection of breast cancer.
Thereafter the club held its monthly activity and gave all the 70 students with sanitary towels and school stationery.
A big thank you to the Beast Cancer Convenor, Lion Tasneem Pirbhai & her team and Service Activity Convenor, Lion Tasneem Dar & her team for the excellent activities.
