Women Die Waiting

(via womendiewaiting.org.au) 

The majority of breast cancers in the Gaza Strip are not detected until it is too late for surgery alone to be effective. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy are not available in Gaza, however, and women must navigate a lengthy and unpredictable permits process to access treatment in the surrounding countries. As a result, many women die waiting for treatment. Learn more

HELP US MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

The women in Gaza are doing wonders with the little that they have. You can do wonders too by joining our campaign and assisting us to raise funds to improve their access to appropriate breast cancer treatment.

By funding breast clinics through the Al Ahli hospital in Gaza, Anglicord will help women to detect their cancers earlier so that they can access appropriate surgical treatment. These clinics will also promote education so that women will understand the need for self examination and early detection, and they will know to seek immediate attention for any suspicious lumps.

The Women Die Waiting campaign is run by Anglicord - Anglican Overseas aid. It received mainstream coverage last night on Channel 10's The 7pm Project.
