In commemoration of the global Breast Cancer Awareness Month, no fewer than 200 female officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) have been screened by the Access Bank W initiative.
The screening took place at the FRSC office, Ojodu Berger, Lagos State.
Abiodun Olubitan, the Group Head of W Initiative said that early screening and detection are still the best approaches to tackling cancers and that the Initiative would be screening no fewer than 5,000 women in October 2022.
“October is declared the breast and cervical cancer month and of course, we have also dedicated the month as our W Health Month which we do every year.
“W Initiative is all about inspiring, connecting and empowering women to improve their lifestyles, that is why we are screening women for breast and cervical cancer.
According to Olubitan, the bank collaborated with FRSC knowing that women in uniform do not really have time for themselves because of the nature of their jobs.
“So, we have partnered with them to ensure they can get this screening in their location and to ensure they can know their status and know the next step to take,” she said.
Speaking on the partnership, Tajudeen Mafe, the Deputy Corps Commander, Logistics RS 2.1 Lagos Corps said it would help enhance innovative initiatives.
Mafe who represented the Sector Commander RS 2.1, Lagos, Corp Commander Olusegun Ogungbemide, said that the issue of breast cancer is critical to the female staff and that they had been enlightened on how to examine themselves for lumps in the breast.
“This effort coming from W Initiative Access Bank also goes in line with our sustainable development goals which deal with healthy living and the well-being of an individual.
“We appreciate your efforts and are grateful for counting us worthy.
“FRSC is an elite corps and we pay paramount attention to the well-being of our staff because we believe that health is wealth,” he said.
