The Aga Khan Council for Mombasa is embarking on a charity walk to harness the support and generosity of well wishers and supporters of cancer patients in the war to beat cancer. A Walk For Life is all about fighting cancer at the grassroots level.

It will do this by educating more and more men and women on early cancer detection, which can lead to treatment and a better chance of survival, and will also deliver timely financial assistance to cancer patients and survivors who would otherwise not be able to afford treatment.

Both these programmes will be open to all members of the public regardless of colour, creed or belief.

This year, the two primary benefactors have been identified namely the Breast Cancer Awareness Support Group, and PACK , another volunteer group based at Coast General Hospital.
