“We are targetting health of mothers and children in the state. You can reach us or nearest health facility so that women do not die because they do not have money.
“That is why BRECAN is raising money to sensitise and cater for those with breast cancer issues. There is hope for women. Therefore, they should come out.
“We are also partnering with wives of traditional rulers tagged Oloris connection, so that they can be good assets to our women in general,” she said.
