Cancer awareness camp
Greetings from STEPS NGO
I am presenting report of the ongoing program activities.
Many women living in slums need to be screened to detect caners, but many barriers preventing them for the screenings because the tests and treatment is cost oriented and lack of facilities. STEPS is arranging awareness camps and screening camps in slums regularly. We are organizing the above services free of cost without financial burden on them with the support of donors through GlobalGiving.
During the month of August organized health camp in project street slum. Women were screened for cancers and some women were referred to Higher institution SVRR Hospital, Tirupati for further investigations.
K Kannemma aged 50 years living in project street slum. Her husband Mr.K. Velayudham is daily wages worker. Because of their poverty she did not have medical checkups and treatment for health complications. When STEPS NGO organized Cancer awareness camp and screening camp she attended the camp. After attending the camp Mrs. K.Knnemma said “I have neglected my health and I never had checkups even though I am suffering with gynecological health complications. During that time I have attended Cancer health camp organized by STEPS NGO. After clinical examination and Cancer screening, STEPS Doctor gave treatment and advised me to go to SVRR Hospital for further Cancer investigations. I am thankful to STEPS NGO for timely referring me to higher Institution.”
