    Olam Agri Cameroon marks World Breast Cancer Awareness Month


    In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Riz Mémé in partnership with Olam Agri Cameroon, launched a week-long awareness campaign to spread knowledge on breast cancer, its preventive measures, and ways to combat the disease. The campaign included various activities highlighting the importance of adopting a healthy lifestyle, methods of prevention, early detection, screening and a donation exercise.

    It kicked off with a virtual health talk that featured an eye–opening session with Akwi Anjoh, a breast cancer survivor who shared her inspirational story of struggling with and overcoming the disease. We also had some health tips admonishing both men and women to have regular checks of their breasts by Dr Ojong Samuel from the Ministry of Public Health in Cameroon. Female employees had an opportunity to be screened on all our work sites.

    We crowned all activities with a donation at Hôpital Laquintinie in Douala yesterday to support breast cancer patients. Speaking during the presentation, Vibhay Chauhan Vice President and Business Head – Rice, expressed gratitude to the cancer unit for their tremendous work in treating and supporting patients and reaffirmed Olam Agri’s commitment supporting the course of cancer treatment and awareness.

    A group of our employees visited each ward with personalised items, drinking water as well as cash gifts to support the patients in their medical bills.
