The Lion Ladies of Lions Club of Mombasa Bahari, Breast Cancer Awareness Committee, held an awareness talk on 4th September 2013 at Rasul Akram Preschool, which is located amongst the Pungu community Likoni. The activity was facilitated by the MECP of the Aga Khan Foundation, Mombasa and the talk was aimed at the ladies so that they in turn could disseminate the knowledge gained to their children and friends.
Thirty ladies attended. All were extremely attentive and interested in learning about breast cancer. Convener, Lion Dr. Mala explained to them about Breast Cancer and also taught them how to self-examine themselves.
There was a lot of interactive discussion between the ladies. For some attending the talk, it was the first time in their lives that such knowledge was imparted to them. They are part of a lower Coastal rural community. It has been a privileged for Lions Club of Mombasa Bahari to be able to serve them in this type of activity.
President, Lion Rashida Pirbhai thanked Convener, Lion Dr. Mala for the wonderful and informative activity. She also thanked MECP for joining hands and providing a mini-van for transport and a big thank you to all ladies who attended.
