Breast Cancer Awareness and Prevention

 

In April 2019, MWLW in collaboration with the Delvine Municipal Hospital Directorate, provided free mammograms for women living in poverty in Shendelli. Of the cancer cases diagnosed, breast cancer is one of the most frequent and most deadly diseases affecting women of all ages. Through an awareness raising campaign, MWL made it possible for 9 women from the area of Shendelli to receive this free service and to learn the importance of examinations. Women were also informed about the importance of breast-feeding and the need to consult with specialists.

Many thanks to the Director of the Hospital In Delvina for procedures and support for MWL Women.
