Mariam Foundation concluded a very successful Pink October for this year, a tour that spanned across tens of local councils, cities, hospitals and even reached Gaza strip to raise awareness for breast cancer and promote the importance of early detection.
The project was kicked off with a small, live broadcasted conference in the Salezian Church in Nazareth and illuminated the church in Pink. After that, Mariam started to tour the country in many cities like Mghar, Mi’l’iya, Kofor Kanna, Mashhad, Jenin, Rahat, Gaza, Al Najah Hospital in Nablus, St. Vincent De Paul Hospital in Nazareth, and Rotary Act Club in Haifa, to reach as many people as we can and deliver the message of awareness to everyone.
The conferences included artistic acts such as singing and artistic dances that embodied the fight and victory over cancer. Apart from the medical lectures presented in the conferences, Mariam Foundation gave tens of stand alone medical lectures to many bodies and institutions during October. Success of Pink October was unprecedented: Over 9000 mammogram tests assigned as a direct result of Mariam Foundation’s conferences and lectures!
Mariam Foundation thanks all of its partners that were a vital part of this success, and also a part of saving the lives of thousands of women. Thank you, our dear audience, for following us whether in person or by watching our live streams. See you in Pink October 2022.
