Project Description

Region: Asia

Country: India

Location: Vellore

Total Budget: $140,000

Area of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment

We Rotary District 3231 along with Rotary club of Vellore gems has decided to do a project to provide breast cancer screening mobile unit (mammography mobile care unit) to rural areas of our district. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women, after skin cancer. One in eight women (roughly 12%) will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. It is also the second leading cause of cancer death in women after lung cancer. Encouragingly, the death rate from breast cancer has declined a bit in recent years, perhaps due to greater awareness and screening for this type of cancer, as well as better treatments.

But the death rate is seemingly high due to lack of awareness in the rural parts of Southern India. The main objective of our project is to provide mobile mammography bus and technicians to give them proper screening to women living in rural areas.

The beneficiaries of the project:

Women aged 35-50 who live in the rural areas (villages, towns, districts, and neighbourhoods away from the city centre) and economically challenged. They were given a complete counselling about their current health status and the test results will be evaluated by experts and delivered related departments. Furthermore, results which could indicate diseases will be delivered the nearest state hospital to make detailed examination and to begin treatment.

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
