One in Nine is an exceptional organisation dedicated to raising public awareness about breast cancer in Israel. It provides women coping with breast cancer with comprehensive information, specialist consultancies, professional support and advice on rights, from the first diagnosis through to all stages of breast cancer. It also organises campaigns to raise awareness of breast cancer and workshops to teach about early detection of the illness.
The JWA feels strongly about supporting One in Nine, which has shown us how effectively it helps women in need, and has provided ongoing funding to help its cause. In 2013-2014, we donated USD 20,000 to the educational program “By Your Side” in Haifa, which provides an educational and supportive social network for women under the age of 30 who have been diagnosed with breast cancer.
