A Shake a Can for World Cancer event will be held in Swakopmund on 5 February, the Cancer Association of Namibia’s (CAN) Rolf Hansen said.

According to Hansen, CAN’s branch manager in the Erongo region, Celeste de Klerk, will arrange the event in Swakopmund. A similar event takes place in the capital on the same day.

For the Windhoek event, Hansen said that the “CAN head office invites those crossing the Sam Nujoma / Robert Mugabe intersection on Friday, 5 February, to make a donation of hope to our children’s interim home”.

CAN’s focus for 2021 is childhood cancer as well as supporting cancer patients amidst Covid-19.

“While the world is still braving the pandemic, we must keep the torch of hope burning for cancer patients who are especially susceptible due to a compromised immune system,” said Hansen.

The national outreach programme which includes cervical and breast screening, started in Swakopmund at the CAN Erongo Centre yesterday, with screenings continuing in Walvis Bay at the Kuisebmond Health Centre from 09:00 to 11:30 and Narraville Health Centre from 12:30 to 15:00 today (Thursday).

CAN’s regional office can be contacted at 064 461 271 for more information including fund raising to CAN’s benefit.
