Women’s Health Drive with CANSA Mobile Clinic in Clanwilliam

On the 5th of August 2015, during CANSA Care Week, the CANSA Mobile Women’s Health Drive was concluded with a Women’s Health outreach in Clanwilliam in partnership with Department of Health, Afrikaanse Christelike Vroue Vereniging (ACVV), HIV initiative and MSAT Sederberg.

West Coast Womens Outreach

The morning was opened by Rev Samantha Valentyn, who spoke with compassion to the people attending the Women’s day. She motivated each present to take responsibility for their own health and to go for their free Papsmears and breast examinations (by CANSA), as well as all other offerings available for the day, e.g. eye tests, weight monitoring, BMI, dental health check, dietician services, mother & baby education and much more.

Our Volunteers & Staff at the CANSA exhibition table invited women to take part in the Womens Health day.

Every woman seen by the dedicated nurse, was interviewed, educated and counselled before and during the screening. A total of 22 women were seen, and 22 breast examinations  and 12 Pap smears were done on the day.

CANSA provided sandwiches, oranges and Energade to those who attended the CANSA exhibition table, as well as a motivational card to enlighten them.

Women’s Health Drive a Huge Success

A total of 300 Pap smears and 326 Clinical Breast Examinations were done during the Women’s Health Drive (6th of July to 5th August 2015), with a total of 328 women reached in the rural areas of the Matzikama and Sederberg municipal areas.

Thank you to our dedicated Volunteers for assisting us in this effort to educate local communities – you are surely make a big difference in the lives of others!
