The Cancer Association of Namibia on Wednesday launched their annual “Pink Day” campaign in Windhoek.
The “WINGS OF HOPE – PINK DAY” campaign will span September and October and is aimed at creating awareness on women’s health, cancer and especially Breast Cancer.
Women are still mostly diagnosed with cancer in Namibia (54%), with breast and cervical cancers leading as most and second most diagnosed in the country.
“To this end, CAN is very excited to launch our new campaign today, inviting men and women to buy a t-shirt, notepads and pens branded in the 2022 campaign design to help raise much-needed funds to sustain CAN’s community clinics that provide cancer screening,” explained Rolf Hansen, CEO of CAN.
CAN is also very excited to partner with Cricket Namibia on the #PledgeforPink campaign that kicks off on Sunday, 03 September 2022, with the APS Pink Cricket event to help create awareness on breast cancer in Namibia.
Merchandise from the “Wings of Hope – Pink Day” campaign will be on sale from 01 September 2022 at CAN, at the APS Pink Cricket event, and at the various participating CAN sub-committee members nationwide.
Order can also be placed with Nadia at 061-237740 or firstname.lastname@example.org
“We ask Namibians to purchase their pink items during September and wear their pink outfits every Friday of October in solidarity of women’s health and the fight on cancer,” said Rolf Hansen of CAN.
National Pink Day will be Friday, 28 October 2021.
