This year we have grown our contributions to include Partners In Health located in Boston, MA, serving women in Haiti, Rwanda, Lesotho, Malawi and Guatemala. We have helped and will continue to help by providing pocketed bras and prostheses.
According to Partners In Health, "This year, thousands more women living in poverty will have access to cervical and breast cancer screenings and treatment because of a recent Partners In Health initiative."
An example of what Partners In Health have achieved:
With generous support from the Avon and Lance Armstrong Foundations, PIH initiated a weekly breast cancer clinic at Clinique Bon Sauveur in Cange in the Central Plateau of Haiti in June 2011. Since then, PIH's Dr. Damuse has performed about 12 to 15 exams each week. Of the women tested, three to four women are diagnosed with cancer weekly.
