      One of my colleagues is doing a project in Malawi looking at cervical cancer. The main reason for going there is that it is a small village with very limited healthcare facilities but many diseases. Cervical cancer is the most common cancer in women there and they do not have any healthcare facility to help them. Most of them are very eager to learn and know more about it but noone to tell them. so My colleague and her team and doing a tremendous job there and i want to help them by donating the money if i win to communicating the message about importance of health in women. They are spreading the message by writing songs in Chichewa (which is the language they speak there) and teach them the songs while they are waiting in the hospital to be seen by a doctor from the team.
