In the past two months, we provided free cervical cancer screening to over 90 women. Outreach was done via a Facebook campaign for which we received plenty of interest with more women being waitlisted for new screening dates. A Special Thanks to Medishine in partnering with KLF to provide this free screening service to Hong Kong women. Thank you also to Summer's Eve for providing the ladies with free gifts and HandsOn Hong Kong for helping to source the volunteers. This initiative is a testament to social media and its power to help our cause.
Here is some feedback from the participants:
Priscilla Yuen: "The experience was extremely positive, not at all uncomfortable. Thanks Karen Leung Foundation for offering the free screening!" (May, 2018)
Emily Lo: "Thanks to the Karen Leung Foundation for offering this free Pap Smear! That helps a lot of women who cannot afford the high fee of cervical screening." (June, 2018)
Connie Ip: "Originally, I did not have initiative to do cervical screening. However, my friend persuaded me to do it as soon as possible. At the same time, I noticed the free Pap Smear offering from Karen Leung Foundation page in Facebook. Thank you so much." (June, 2018)
Vicky Wong: "I always hoped to receive cervical screening. This opportunity benefited me a lot." (June, 2018)
