Anglican Overseas Aid, an Anglican overseas aid agency, is raising money to fund a breast clinic in the Gaza Strip, so that women can detect cancers earlier and access appropriate treatment sooner. Through our partnership with Al Ahli Hospital in Gaza, we aim to fund the screening of 2000 women annually over three years, improve community education, and advocate for better treatment for women who are diagnosed with breast cancer.
This program is partly funded by AusAID, the Australian Government Agency for International Development.
Women do wonders
The women of Gaza are already doing wonders with the little they have – we can follow their example, and come together to do wonderful things for them. Anglican Overseas Aid is inviting church and other community groups to get together and learn about the issues facing women in Gaza, to learn about their way of life, and to raise money to improve early detection and treatment of breast cancer. At these gatherings, we will encourage them to adopt this project for the coming year, and brainstorm ways their community group can raise money.
Anglican Overseas Aid is also supporting Register4, an initiative of the National Breast Cancer Foundation of Australia. Register4 asks women to register their details for ongoing research into breast cancer research, and Anglican Overseas Aid will encourage all campaign participants to join Register4.
