Story

Matabeleland South Province is one of the most deprived areas in Zimbabwe.  A breast cancer patient's pathway is painfully slow, resulting in many being diagnosed at a late stage, when their cancer can no longer be cured.

The ABS in the UK is working with partners in health, education and government in Zimbabwe to improve breast cancer care in Matabeleland South. We aim to establish 2 rural clinics, in Gwanda and Beitbridge, with the ability to diagnose cancer.  This involves equipping and training staff to use portable ultrasound devices where the image can be seen on a mobile phone or tablet. 

We are asking for your help in raising money for two ultrasound probes. Each costs £4000 and will be invaluable for patients taking the first step towards diagnosis and treatment. 

We thank you for your support.
