Mumbai : A cancer screening camp was held for female inmates at Byculla Jail in Mumbai on Tuesday, organised by the Kamala Ankibai Ghamandiram Gowani Trust, a charitable organisation that focuses on helping transgender people, women, and the elderly.

The Cancer Screening and Early Detection Camp was organised in conjunction with the Cancer Patients Aid Association to help those in need learn more about cancer and be checked out sooner rather than later. The camp screened over a hundred female detainees thoroughly for cancer.

Preeti Jhangiani, a well-known Bollywood star, attended the event to offer her support for the cause.

Kamala Ankibai Ghamandiram Gowani Trust trustee and well-known social activist Nidarshana Gowani remarked, “We are very happy with the response to the camp. Awareness and early detection are the best forms of protection against cancer.” We appreciate the help from the jail staff in planning the camp, and we will continue to support efforts to improve the health and safety of female inmates in the future.

Following its slogan “Rise by lifting others,” the Kamala Ankibai Ghamandiram Gowani Trust has been making positive contributions to the world. Welfare for the transgender community, women’s self-employment programmes, widows of the armed forces, vaccination campaigns, temple and dharmasala construction, senior citizen centre funding, stray animal feeding campaigns, health camps, sports tournaments, and food distribution campaigns are just a few of the many causes it supports.

As Trustee Ms. Nidarshana Gowani has been at the helm, the organization’s mission and scope have grown and new initiatives have been launched to further its long-term goals. It’s working with disadvantaged groups to provide resources and assistance.
