In an effort to raise awareness of the deadly cancer disease for the Tanoa Tusitala Hotel staff, the management invited the Samoa Cancer Society (SCS) on the 1st November 2019. The timely invitation of the SCS team corresponded with the Pinktober annual cancer awareness campaign which runs for the whole month of October. As their core aim to promote and facilitate the early detection and treatment of cancer sufferers with access to palliative care, the SCS team thus inform the Tanoa Tusitala staff.
Prior the SCS’s visit, the Tanoa Tusitala also accepted a request from the Samoa Family Health Association (SFH) on the 25th October 2019. The request is part of their mandated outreach programmes which concentrates on educating the communities on sexual reproductive health, gender-based violence, sexual crimes and their implications on other surrounding issues.
