“Jeta Vita” marks the month of breast cancer awareness

On October 20, the “Jeta/Vita” Kosovo Center for Fighting Breast Cancer (KCFBC) hosted the 11th edition of its cultural and outreach event, where many citizens marched together under the “Early Discovery = Survival” motto of the organization, to express solidarity and increase awareness on breast cancer in the Kosovar society.

Citizens, representatives of women organizations and state representatives, gathered on the Prishtina Main Square with pink balloons, ribbons and scarves to support the mission of the Jeta/Vita KCFBC, aiming at using the event to raise social awareness of the risk of breast cancer and to create better conditions for early detection and optimal treatment of this disease in Kosovo.
The participants were greeted with a speech by the Prime Minister of Kosovo Ramush Haradinaj, the former President of Kosovo (2011-2016) Atifete Jahjaga, and the Executive Director of Jeta/Vita, Nafije Latifi, who launched the joint message that these women are not alone, because it is only by coming together that every battle can be won. The event also included ballet and poetry performances by renowned Kosovar actors.
For over 11 years now, Jeta/Vita cooperates with various organizations and institutions in organizing this march and in carrying out numerous advocacy activities for quality health care for women in Kosovo.
Meanwhile, the Kosovo Women’s Network expresses its gratitude to the Mr. Rex brand and the Telecom of Kosovo Vala, for their commitment to supporting the Jeta/Vita KCFB
