The Foundation does this by enlightening people on the dangers of cancer and how to avoid it, providing information on what to do and where to go if affected by the scourge as well as stressing the importance of early screenings. The Foundation visits schools, churches, markets, and public places to emphasize the importance of early screenings for cancer as the best method to avoid the scourge. Advocacy visits are also done to pressure government to integrate cancer policies into its daily program
Cancer Day is a leading international awareness day which is packaged by
the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) on the 4th of
February every year to raise awareness on cancer and encourage its
prevention, detection, and treatment. It unites the world population in
its fight against cancer and seeks to save millions of preventable
deaths each year by adopting strategies, actions, and education about
the disease as well as pressing governments and individuals across the
world to take collective action. This global uniting initiative helps to
provide life saving cancer treatment and care to all, no matter whom
you are or where you live. Created in 2000, David Omenukor Foundation
has been the only Foundation in the South-East participating in this
program since 2017 through public enlightenment and road walk.
