Late Mrs. JUSTINA
In January 2018, five women benefited from the Burning Candles Campaign Ireland. They were supported with 10, 000 Naira to undertake a smear test. Smear test is free in European countries but women have to pay to get one in Nigeria. Currently, cervical cancer is the 2nd killing cancer in Nigeria. There is still poor awareness on its prevention and socio-economic and cultural mitigation against women taking a smear test in Nigeria.
Each benefitiaries made an online video to promote awareness within their own circle.

Many women are going to die this year as a result of cervical cancer. We need to continue to promote awareness and encourage women to take a smear test. Smear test is proven to be the top prevention method as it allows for early detection of the HPV virus and treatment.
In loving memory of Mrs Justina Onyemelukwe who died as a result of cervical cancer in 15/03/2017.
