Minhaj Women League Dundee organised the first event of their wellbeing series, which was on physical health and cancer. The programme was hosted by president MWL Dundee Mrs Sabina Islam and started off with tilawat by Dawah Secretary Mrs Sajidah Afzal And MWL Dundee Sarparast Ustadha Faiza Al Qasmi recited a naat.
Then the host handed the mic over to the 3 main respected guests, Dr Zahida Din, Dr Shahida Din and Dr Shazia Din, who each specialised in medicine. They each gave a different talk on the different types of cancer to give a better understanding to the women such as making us aware of the different kind of symptoms to look out for as well as highlighting the importance of self-care and regular checkups.
We also had two very brave women, Ruth and sister Shahida who fought cancer themselves and shared with us their own experiences.
The programme was concluded with three workshops giving the attendees a better insight on how the treatments worked and how to prevent cancer. The doctors were open to answering any questions throughout the workshops.
Refreshments were provided at the end.
