October is breast cancer awareness month (or Rosy October as they call it in Gaza). We’re asking woman in the UK to stand in solidarity with women in Gaza by hosting a virtual fundraising event throughout October, November and December, or by donating to our Women 4 Women Appeal. Just £60 provides breast cancer screening for a woman in Gaza. Thank you for your support.
Women 4 Women 2020
Host a virtual event in solidarity with women in Gaza this Autumn
Every year, to mark breast cancer awareness month (or Rosy October as it’s called in Gaza), we ask women to come together to do something they love, to raise awareness and vital funds to help the women of Gaza to access the breast cancer screening programme at Al Ahli Arab Hospital in Gaza City.
Past events have included coffee mornings, art exhibitions, gigs, Palestinian dinners, clothes swaps, exhibitions, gin tasting, marathons, interactive installations and church services.
This year, all our worlds look different and we might not be able to get together in quite the same way, but perhaps now more than ever, it is important to join together in whatever way we can, in solidarity with women here in the UK and in Gaza.
A Place of Peace:
Al Ahli Arab Hospital in Gaza City.
This year you can support our Women 4 Women campaign in one of three ways:
A woman at Al Ahli Hospital in Gaza City is screened for signs of breast cancer.
Screening is so simple and so effective — if we can work with women so that they can identify breast cancer early, we can treat it. We need to make screening normal for women and change traditional attitudes. At the moment too many die, they are scared that if diagnosed they will be shunned by their families. Suhaila Tarazi — Director of Al Ahli Arab Hospital, Gaza City
