Cancer Awareness & Screening Progress Report

By Patricia Okolo | Operations/Publicity Manager

The Cancer Awareness and Screening project, just Kickstarted, it was delayed due to the COVID- 19 Pandemic, and the risk involved in gathering 200 women.


Project Relevance:

Breast and cervical cancers are the most common type of cancers among women. At this time, most cancer patients in Nigeria are diagnosed at advanced stages of the disease, which reduces their chances of survival. In rural and low-income areas, socio-economic limitations and illiteracy have led to several misconceptions about these cancers. These have precipitated a vicious cycle of preventable/premature deaths and hopelessness from women and young girls and they find it so impossible to overcome.

Progress Update:

200 young ladies and women from five schools and three churches in Akwa Anambra State were selected.

The project will commence the Cancer awareness and sensitization workshop by January.



COVID-19 Pandemic is affecting the project, we will mitigate this by sensitizing and screening the women in batches.

Thank you
