CanSupport in association with Pfizer have started a new campaign to increase awareness about cancer in workplaces and organizations.
As part of this campaign, an awareness session was organized for the employees of Kalakar Trust, a registered Non-Governmental Organisation working with artists residing in Delhi slums and other communities. The aim of the Kalakar Trust is to provide medical care, education, and support for community management and income generation.
The session took place in their premises on 5 December, 2019. The session was aimed at raising awareness about the major causes of cancer such as smoking, alcohol intake, tobacco consumption, lack of exercise, and a sedentary lifestyle, etc.
CanSupport’s Savita Luka, deputy head, training & education, conducted the session on cancer awareness. She emphasized that according to research, breast and ovarian cancer are on the rise in women, while mouth, lung and blood cancer continue to increase in men.
Around 110 employees from the organization attended this session.
We are grateful to Sterre Sharma, Founder, Kalakar Trust and Anju Choubey Trustee of Kalakar Trust for supporting us in organizing the session.
