Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Every October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and this gives us an opportunity to spread awareness about the disease that kills nearly 41,000 women each year globally.

Each year, in October, led by our Health and Wellness Team, Ghana International School celebrates Breast Cancer Awareness by educating the community, distributing pink ribbons and conducting breast screening exercises for interested staff. 

Today’s breast screening exercise was successfully organized in collaboration with Health Net Hospital. The exercise had both men and women from our community trooping in to have their breasts examined. Not only did everyone leave with a smile on their faces, but they were also treated to healthy packs of fruits.

Thank you to our Health and Wellness team for this wonderful initiative.
