Minhaj Women League Accrington organised a workshop to raise awareness on cancer. The workshop commenced with the beautiful recitation of the Holy Quran followed by salutations and blessing being sent on our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW).
The workshop was delivered by Sister Adila Parveen who is a radio therapist at Oldham hospital, and sister Saika (MWL Blackburn President). English translation was done by Sister Naseem Hussain allowing both English and Urdu speakers to benefit from the workshop.
The audience was informed of the common signs and symptoms of various types of cancer including breast, bowel, skin, cervical, lung, kidney, bladder and skin cancers. They were also informed of the measures that can be taken to minimise the risk of certain cancers developing including exercise, eating healthily and visiting the doctor for regular check-ups. Sister Adila and Sister Saika emphasised the importance of regular cancer screening in order to prevent and minimise the risk of cancer developing.
Attendees provided positive feedback and requested for further such workshops to be arranged. Refreshments were provided to everyone at the end.
