The Pink Ribbon Campaign stretches all the way to Kenya.
All of the pharmacy’s customers can now contribute to women’s health– in Sweden and in Kenya. During the month of October the pharmacy Hjärtat’s focus is on the most common female cancer illnesses. We are promoting BRO’s Pink Ribbon and reflectors in a the campaign to fight breast cancer and we also encourage our club members to donate their bonus points to help the women in Gundua, Kenya.
The Pharmacy Hjärtat supports The National Breast Cancer Organization (BRO) in Sweden and sells the BRO Pink Ribbon and reflectors during the whole month of October. Breast cancer is now an issue even far away from Sweden.
– At the Pharmacy Hjärtat we stand behind our commitment to Gundua and the people of Ex-Lewa, a small village in northern Kenya. Cancer is one of the main reasons for death here and among the women, breast- and cervical cancer are the predominating illnesses, says Annika Svedberg, Head of the Pharmacists at Apotek Hjärtat.
Gundua Health Center’s objective is to save more women’s lives and one way is to offer pregnant women mammography and smear tests. In Kenya cancer diagnoses are often set in a very late stage which is why it is important that more women can come to the examinations in order to get the correct treatment as early as possible.
