Thousands of workers participated in the Seminars conducted at NBTC camp, Mina Abdulla and NSH camp Wafra.

The ‘meet and greet’ program on Saturday afternoon was one of a kind experience for the dignitaries and leaders of the Keralite community who attended the program. The public event held in the evening was inaugurated by the media representative of the Ministry of Health Dr. Habeel Al Aun. The welcome address was given by Shareef Thamarassery, Convener, Organizing committee. President of Nilaav Kuwait, Habibullah Muttichur presided over the ceremony.

The souvenir was unveiled by the Abbasiya Chief of police Col.Ibrahim Abdul Razak Al Duaij who presented it to Rajan Rauther. Dr. V.P.Gangadharan, renowned Medical Oncologist from India, addressed the audience; pointing out that one in 8 women in Kerala had a high risk of developing breast cancer. Cancer is a disease that could be completely cured if detected early enough. Painless cysts, red patches in the skin, holes in the breast etc are dangerous signs that necessitate an immediate visit to the doctor to confirm it isn’t cancer. In the early stages, it is possible to remove the affected part alone by surgery. Smoking, drinking, and changes in diets of the present-day society are the leading causes of cancer. Vegetables including green leaves and peas, soya and fruits are some foods that help reduce the risk of cancer, Dr.V.P.Gangadharan opined.

Dr.K.Chitrathara, reputed Cancer Surgeon, also addressed the audience.

Earlier in the day, the ‘Young Talents - Volunteers for Cancer Awareness’ was inaugurated by Ambassador of India to Kuwait H.E. Mr. Sunil Jain, which was organized for selected students and teachers of Indian Schools in Kuwait. Many Patients and their families were given an opportunity to consult the doctor as part of the program.

Mujeebulla K.V. proposed the vote of thanks, to conclude a day of spreading awareness and alleviating fears about the dreaded disease.
