Dear Donors,

Greetings from STEPS NGO

Cervical and Breast cancers are most common type of cancers in India among women. There are many women in need of screening and treatment in slums of srikalahasti. The reasons are lack of education and poor condition. This results in many women not knowing about the risk factors of cancers, or the importance of getting screened. They have several misconceptions about cancers. Implementing this program in slums of Srikalahasti municipality, a drought pone, backward area in chittoor district, Andhra Pradesh state,India.

 STEPS organize talks, awareness camps and training that explain the risk factors of cancers, the disease progression, treatment, and the importance of screening. During these camps, the women were explained about Cancer disease symptoms and self examination of breast to find out the symptoms of cancer.

The women in the picture aged 60 years one of the beneficiaries shared with our team and says “I am truly grateful to STEPS for creating awareness about cancers to us. Now I will tell other women about cancers and motivate other them for screening of cancers”.

 Thank you for supporting this project and bringing vital Cervical and Breast cancers awareness, education and screening of vulnerable women in Srikalahasti.

 It is because of supporters like yourself, that we are able to provide these services. We need your support and kindly consider donating to continue this program for slum women.

Thanks and regards

Dr. P. Prameelamma

Dear supporter,       

STEPS NGO is implementing HIV/AIDs screening and awareness program for key population in Srikalahasti and surrounding Mandals. Sex workers among them are educated about Breast and Cervical cancer.

During last month we had organized Cancer awareness program for sex workers about breast and cervical cancer. These women are at a higher risk of developing these cancers due to their HIV status. They showed interest and the information and knowledge they gained were shared when they went back to their communities. They shared the knowledge as well as to show fellow sex workers how to do breast self examination. These workers expressed their   appreciation for these services extended to them in the place where they live because they do not have a specialized doctor.

 We have Organized work shop for  20 Health Outreach Activists (female who act as community mobilizers) focused on cervical cancer , Sexually Transmitted Diseases and  the importance of periodical checkups. The trained women shared the information with other women in their respective slums. The women expressed that it was the first time for them to engage in such action, to receive information for the above issues.

We are planning to expand more screening options for high risk women in the near future. Thank you so much for making this vital service possible with all your generous donations.

Dear Friends,

Greetings from STEPS NGO

          I hope all of you are taking care and precautions to protect from corona. In India even though the lockdown was lifted, phase wise the people are not coming out. Still carona is not controlled. During last 3 months the people in slums of Srikalahasti municipality in Andhra Pradesh State, India are facing different complications during the Lockdown period. Indian government recently implemented Lockdown and during this period all the activities were shutdown. Even though at present the Lockdown was lifted the corona disease is spreading.

          During the health camps in addition to Cancer awareness, we are creating awareness and educating people to take precautions so that they will not be exposed for carona infection.

          During the health camp Dr Prameelamma explained to the beneficiary in the above picture about the Cancer symptoms and precautions to be taken to protect from cancers.

          Thank you for your support which allows us to organize health camps to these women and girls to change their lives.

 With regards

Dr. P. Prameelamma
