Did you know that early screening can save women’s lives in developing countries like Nepal?
Since 2009, the Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation has helped to screen over 35,000 women in Nepal. But, there are still women across the world are still unable to reach these life-saving preventative measures – and we want to change that!
Because of the lack of healthcare and knowledge about health in developing countries like Nepal, many women remain unaware about their own health. This poses a massive risk to not only their health but their future and with your help we have the power to change their realty.
No matter where you live, all women deserve the right to have a family and be able to watch them grow. In March this year, Karuna attended her first ever cervical cancer screening at Banepa Women’s Clinic. Before her trip to the clinic, Karuna had little knowledge about cervical cancer and was encouraged to attend her first screening by a friend.
In a country like Nepal, $20 can screen and treat a Nepali woman. With your support, more women like Karuna and Maina can be screened and live a long, happy and healthy life.
Recently, the Tamang region was devastated by an earthquake and this disaster has prevented women from having access to regular cervical cancer screening. Not having regular access to these clinics and healthcare facilities puts these women at risk but with your help we can extend our existing facilities so that Nepali women will have regular access to cervical screening and treatment. Being able to screen women in developing countries, just once in their lifetime, can reduce their risk of cervical cancer by 40%!
There is still time to help save women’s lives and with the end of financial year coming up, it’s not too late to make a tax-deductible donation. With your help the Nepali women will have access to necessary cervical screening and treatment. Let’s change the world for the better this financial year, help us ensure that women like Karuna and Maina can be screened and live long, happy lives.
