Standing in solidarity with the women of Gaza

The idea: 

October is breast cancer awareness month and we're asking the woman of the UK to stand in solidarity with our sisters in Gaza by hosting a local event to raise awareness and support amongst family, friends and neighbours throughout October, November and December.

Jenny Baker, Chair of Amos Trustees told us:
"In 2015 I had treatment for breast cancer and although it was gruelling, I had excellent care as soon as I needed it. Women in Gaza have a much harder time. Cancer services are woefully inadequate with out of date technology for screening, no facilities for radiotherapy in the Gaza Strip, little information on self-examination and low survival rates.

Last year for Women 4 Women, I cooked a Palestinian feast and invited lots of female friends round. We had a wonderful evening of eating, conversation and laughter and I was amazed at how generous people were with their donations. It was a complete win-win – a brilliant evening of connection for women in Ealing and lots of money raised for women in Gaza."

We want women all over the UK to get together over the coming months and support the women of Gaza by raising awareness and vital funds for the breast cancer screening programme at Amos partner Al Ahli Hospital in Gaza, whilst doing something you enjoy doing!

Please download your resource pack to get event ideas and lots of background information about the situation in Gaza. And for 2017, we have some new resources for you:
