2013 JCI Curepipe Health Campaign – collaboration with Link to Life

July 25, 2013

Partnerships are an important part of accomplishing the JCI mission and vision. By engaging various stakeholders together, we can amalgam ideas, actions thereby bringing sustainable solutions and touch the lives of more people in our community and promote the value of true active citizenship.

It’s just a brief note to express our sincere thanks to the wonderful team of JCI Curepipe for the work they have undertaken and also for collaborating with Link to Life in our fight against cancer.

Partnering with JCI Curepipe has been an enriching experience; they participated with cancer patients of Link to Life in the Mauritius Marathon 2012 and 2013 held at St Felix, Bel Ombre. The aim was to disseminate the myths about cancer and also to show that physical exercise is important and can be performed by cancer patients.

Cancer Awareness Session

We really enjoyed working with JCI Curepipe especially in our cancer awareness programmes. JCI Curepipe helped us in organising an awareness campaign on breast and cervical cancer for the residents of Eau Coulee, Curepipe on Saturday 4 August 2012. Their high-energy and communications was extremely valuable when it comes to sensitize people of the locality, informing them about the event.

JCI Curepipe also organised a health day on Saturday 13 October 2012 whereby different health organisations including Link to Life were able to participate in order to promote awareness about health related issues. I am certain we would not have been as successful in identifying and regrouping a large number of people in Curepipe for our awareness campaign on cancer without the help and support of JCI’s team.

Once again, on behalf of Link to Life, I would like to thank JCI Curepipe for their expertise, dedication and support in our activities and we hope we can count on their usual collaboration in the future, for our actions in fighting against cancer.
