Vulcan organizes health fair in Moatize

Under the slogan: “United against breast and prostate cancers”, Vulcan, in partnership with the Tete Health Sector and the Moatize City Council, held the 3rd edition of the Vulcan Fair last Wednesday, November 29, this time with a greater focus on health, with the aim of promoting the health and well-being of communities, providing services free of charge, and raising awareness about the prevention of breast and prostate cancers.

The event was attended by several Vulcan leaders, the husband of the Secretary of State of Tete province, Vicente Ali, the Director of the Provincial Health Service, Carla Mosse Lázaro, the Moatize District Administrator, Eugénio Muchanga, the Mayor of Moatize City, Carlos Portimão, among cooperation partners, who were pleased with the initiative and left an appeal, particularly to men, about the need to pay more attention to their health.

“We have a primary responsibility to control our state of health, carrying out regular examinations to screen for these diseases, because it is known that when diagnosed early, the risks of major damage or death are lower,” said Vicente Ali, husband of the Secretary of State of Tete province, and he added: “Once again, we want to continue to appeal to men to join the mass screening that services are available in health units,” he concluded.

On the other hand, Anoop Kumar, speaking on behalf of Vulcan, highlighted the importance of this fair, which brought together the Pink October and Blue November campaigns. “As a company, we care about the health and well-being of communities. That’s why we bring various health services here, in order to raise awareness so that they can take better care of their health,” she concluded.

In addition to raising awareness about cancer, family planning services, body mass index assessment, blood pressure, blood glucose, oral health, eye health, education and cooking demonstrations, HIV counseling and testing, as well as aerobics, soccer matches, athletics, among other activities, were also available free of charge.
