Zurak Cancer Foundation Storms Madina Market On 3rd Anniversary

Zurak Cancer Foundation held another market invasion at Madina Market to commemorate its 3rd Anniversary. The aim of the event seeks to interact with Market Women and educate them about cervical cancer. It is part of Zurak Cancer Foundation's motive to increase awareness about the disease in order to encourage early detection since most of the cancers detected in Ghana are always at stage 4 which is very bad. Moreover, most of the individuals who expressed interest in the initiative were the head porters (Kayayei) and Zurak Cancer Foundation has started working on a module to develop more initiatives to reach out to the Kayayei.

Zurak Cancer Foundation Tours Sweden Ghana Medical Center - SGMC

As part of our 3rd Anniversary, we developed an initiative called "Founder's Diary" on social media to share some our stories to inspire our audience regarding our journey. During the cause of the initiative we share an experience we encountered some three (3) years ago when we visited the Sweden Ghana Medical Center for a tour and we were rejected. Lucky for us, the CEO Madam Janine De Nysschen read our story and she gave us the opportunity to tour the facility in order to have a fair idea on cancer treatment in Ghana and West Africa.
