We are at the German Corporation (GIZ) Wellness event, talking Breast Cancer Awareness. Hope is with us, to allow the participants to check for breast lumps.
When was the last time you checked your breasts?
Did you know that our pamphlets explain the signs of breast cancer, in both English and Setswana?
Do you know which signs to look out for?
Have you seen our pink bikes at a clinic near you?
Speaking of clinics, when was the last time you visited yours to have your breasts checked?
Over the next months, we will be sharing memories from our decade of taking Breast Cancer Awareness throughout Botswana. Enjoy the (pink) ride!
We are attending the launch of the 3rd National Strategic Framework for HIV & AIDS.
We are particularly interested in the MultiSectional Strategy for Prevention and Control of Non Communicable Diseases, as breast cancer is classified under NCDs. — attending Launch of NCDs Multi-Sectoral Strategy and NSF III at GICC.
We are ecstatic!
Our Chairperson and Founder, Mrs Beverly Denbury, has recently been honoured by the British Foreign & Commonwealth Office for 'Service to Britain Internationally and Overseas'. This honour, which has been bestowed upon 80 exceptional Britons around the globe, is part of The Queen's Birthday Honours. Bev will receive her medal from The Queen or another Member of the Royal Family.
This prestigious MBE recognition, which was recently announced on Fri 07 June 2019, is for Bev's tireless contribution to charity and voluntary work in the area of Breast Cancer Awareness in Botswana.
As a brave Breast Cancer Fighter herself, Bev's compassion, empathy, determination and fighting spirit have contributed to spreading awareness and saving the lives of many women (and a few men) who would have otherwise detected their cancer late, due to lack of awareness.
2019 marks the 10th year that Journey of Hope Botswana has been spreading awareness, under Bev's unwavering guidance. We couldn't be prouder!
The Journey of Hope Botswana is a not for profit organisation of volunteers whose aim is to promote breast cancer awareness in the country.
