May 2023: The first action has been a success
The first seminar of this initiative took place in early May in the Nyaruguru district, from where cherries are supplied to the Fuji washing station.
Together, more than 150 producers shared their own experiences with the disease during the activity. Most of them had lived very hard experiences related to breast cancer due to late diagnosis.
Therefore, in addition to answering all the questions, Dr. Naasson Nduwamungu gave attendees information on the development of breast cancer and tools for early detection through self-examination.This will allow the disease to be detected early and its prognosis to be much more favorable than at present.
