Hundreds of community members from Kouga and Kou-kamma received free cancer screenings during PinkDrive's first visit to the Eastern Cape last week.

The five-day outreach started at Kareedouw and Clarkson, then moved on to the KwaNomzamo Clinic at Humansdorp, Sea Vista Clinic at St Francis Bay and Pellsrus Clinic at Jeffreys Bay.
 
Kouga Mayor Elza van Lingen said almost 1000 cancer-related tests were conducted free of charge by the PinkDrive team, led by their CEO Noelene Kotschan, over the course of the week free.
 
"The theme of the outreach was 'Early detection saves lives'. It was heartening to see so many women and men taking the message to heart and making use of this opportunity," the Mayor said.

A total of 479 clinical breast exams, 111 mammograms, 188 pap smears, 32 ultra sounds and 153 prostate-specific antigen (PSA) tests were conducted and 30 referrals were made.
 
The Mayor thanked the Jeffreys Bay Wind Farm, Kouga Wind Farm and Tsitsikamma Community Wind Farm for making the outreach possible.
 
"October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the outreach was a wonderful way to raise awareness of the importance of early detection," she said.
 
More than 700 learners further benefited from a health education programme presented at local schools to complement the outreach.
The PinkDrive was supported by local roleplayers, including the Department of Health and NGOs, whose staff were on hand to conduct diabetes, tuberculosis, HIV and nutrition screenings.
"Hundreds of lives were touched. We are grateful to all the roleplayers who took hands and helped to make the outreach a success," the Mayor said.
