The Beauty for Hope event took place at the Designer Market Place (DMP), City Park Wuse 2 Abuja on the 7th of September, 2013.
Together Our Leaders Unite (T.O.L.U) in collaboration with Breast Cancer Association of Nigeria, DMP and several Make up outfits united to support a worthy cause by raising funds for cancer patients as well as increasing cancer awareness among the youth in the community.
The Designers market place is one of Abuja’s largest shopping and trade fair event. The Beauty for Hope event raised funds for patients fighting cancer by giving the shoppers at the fair the opportunity to get primped up for a fee. The shoppers had their eye brows carved, beautiful total face make up and make up tips. Everyone that visited the stand was given several flyers on cancer basics and prevention. They were also given little gifts such as wrist band, jotters and gift bag all courtesy of BRECAN. Volunteer Medical doctors were also at the stand to answer any questions the happy shoppers had. Interested people were taught Breast self-examination through demonstration. The volunteers also walked round through most stands giving out flyers to both shoppers and sellers and as well answering questions and giving health tips.
Even though it rained half the day, there was definitely a rainbow at the end. See below a few of the captured moments.
