Help from Haval

01 October 2019 | Society

Breast and cervical cancer are the focus of the Cancer Association of Namibia (CAN) in September and October.
Backing women’s health and development, Pupkewitz Haval supported CAN’s Heartbeat of Hope tour that presented motivational and empowerment events in Rehoboth, Gobabis, Okahandja, Henties Bay, Swakopmund and Walvis Bay.
The tour ended in Windhoek at CAN’s annual Hats & Roses Ladies Morning that welcomed 430 women for a morning of hope and laughter last weekend.
CAN’s National Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) Programme was also rolled out during the week-long roadshow to strengthen the fight against cervical cancer through quality DNA testing.
Pupkewitz Haval not only sponsored the vehicle for the campaign, but also fuel to the amount of N$5 000.
Women based in Windhoek who would like to have an HPV test done, can contact CAN’s Sr Aina Nghitongo at 061 237 740 or [email protected] for clinic dates.
