Eileen van der Schyff

The Cancer Association of Namibia (CAN) started their 2020 National Cancer Outreach Programme (NCOP) last week Monday. One thousand and twenty-seven people will be fully complementary screened in this program.

The free screening of this amount of people is made possible by funds raised through the “Slice of Life. Raffle for Hope” project in 2019 which was supported by Gondwana Collection. In addition to the confirmed 1027 Namibians impacted, funds from the 2019 Bank Windhoek Cancer Apple Project are reserved for the screening of at least another 2000 Namibians during the year.  The National Cancer Outreach Program launched in August 2018, together with the CAN Medical Centers in Windhoek, Swakopmund and Rehoboth screened close to 45 000 Namibians for cancer since January 2016…..
