Breast Cancer Awareness Programme at Jagiot Village, by Inner Wheel Club of Islamabad Cosmopolitan.

The Inner Wheel Club of Islamabad Cosmopolitan organised a Breast Cancer

Awareness programme and a medical camp in a local school at Jagiot village for women and young girls.

Dr Saira Mahmood (Consultant on Breast Cancer and General Surgeon) delivered a very informative lecture on breast cancer and emphasised on the importance of self-examination in a very simple and clear way. She then gave clinical consultation to many ladies and referred some to Rawal, Pims & Polyclinic. Painkillers, and iron tablets were distributed to the women.

Pamphlets on breast cancer were also given, written by Kanwal Syed in a very comprehensive way in Urdu which is the local language.

Later, food boxes and juices were distributed to the women students and school staff.

IWCIC would like to thank Dr Saira Mahmood, District Vice-Chairman Afshan Abbasi and the executive team members for joining in in the activity.
