ECFH has always supported the development and advancement of women in all areas, whether it be health, education, entrepreneurship or more, and the company would like to wish all women a “Happy International Women’s Day”.
As the world recognized Friday, March 8 as a day devoted to the empowerment of women, the ECFH Group commemorated the occasion by making a contribution to the Saint Lucia Cancer Society.
The donation—aimed at helping promote Breast Cancer Awareness—is as a result of contributions from two initiatives by the ECFH Group.
During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, October 2012, the Group launched the “Pink” Campaign that saw the purchase of ECFH pink bags by the public. Combined with the proceeds from the Pink Can Campaign – which were placed at each of the Group’s subsidiaries – ECFH was able to make a substantial donation to aiding the St Lucia Cancer Society.
Assistant Manager – Training & Development, Jasmin Charles, during the cheque presentation stated, “We are pleased to present this contribution to the St Lucia Cancer Society today, as we observe International Women’s Day. We know that when it comes to breast cancer, early detection and education is key and any effort we can make to ensure that women are made more aware of this issue is vital.”
Charles went on: “As we mark this important day we must remember that women have made great strides and the journey continues for all. The ECFH Group understands the importance of this and with this donation we celebrate and recognize all the women of the world.”
The ECFH Group remains committed to supporting initiatives and programmes that help in the advancement of all generations of women.
In addition to supporting the St Lucia Cancer Society, ECFH has also committed to “Faces of Cancer” and is making a contribution to the Royal St Lucia Police Force to assist in the distribution of Prostate Cancer and Breast Cancer Awareness Pins.
