Before we started working in the rural communities in Edo State, we visited the Royal King for his blessings. He was a very gracious man and welcomed our initiative, we are highly grateful for your support.
It is a day I shall never forget, for I remember how we all anxiously waited outside the palace for our turn to go into the reception room. Seeing all the senior chiefs and how orderly and respectful the scene was, blow our mind.
On the Kings arrival, the chiefs carried out the royal traditional welcoming routines and sang some great welcoming songs, it was fantastic. I can still see the smile on our faces.
After all the routine welcoming and introductions, I was asked to introduce my team and why we were there. I did my best, (lol). The chiefs were very supportive and asked a few questions. It was very rewarding to see the King approve are work and even issued us a letter, for he felt Breast Cancer was a scourge that needed to be fought from every possible angle.
Cancel Cancer Africa is very privileged to be associated with he Palace and we shall thrive each day to fulfil our promise and vision to reduce Breast Cancer late presentations through awareness in rural Africa.
Today we say thank you to the Royal King of Benin Kingdom.
