Yellow Week will be upon us soon on the 12- 18th September. This year we will be raising funds for a mobile cancer screening centre (a bus providing mammography, colorectal screening etc) for the urban poor and rural areas. Your support for this cause would be fantastic! The mobile bus for the urban poor is a project which is achievable with a little bit of help. It will be about RM600,000 to set up. It is a programme which is sorely needed in the Klang Valley. Statistics have shown that for underpriviledged women newly diagnosed with breast cancer the average size of the breast lump is 5.5cm .... larger than a golf ball.... the size of a small peach!!! This is not a kampung in the middle of nowhere.... this is KL. Her chances of beating something like this is less than 50%. The bus can at least help educated and screen (mammograms) over 5-6000 women a year and at least change that statistic to something more positive. We have a couple of fund raising events lined up for the week and of course a few awareness campaigns based on the 'Celebrate Life ' theme. Please support ‘Yellow Week’ events in September! A synoposis of the events are as follows: 16-18th: Cancer Expo, Suria KLCC & Bangsar Shopping Centre (free breast cancer examinations, fashion show of cancer survivors: all ages 6yrs - 76yrs! and other activities) 16th: Wear Yellow Day: Participants from corporations, organizations & schools wear NCSM yellow ribbons or a yellow item of clothing and donate in support of NCSM 16th: CelebrateLife! Dinner Show with The Philharmonic Society of Selangor, Crowne Plaza Mutiara Kuala Lumpur 18th: CelebrateLife Inaugural Charity Golf Tournament, Palm Garden Golf Course Wristband Contest August 15th-September 14th.. Prizes worth more than RM10,000! (Tune in to MixFM, read the newspapers or call NCSM at 03-2698 7300 for more contest details) Many cancers can be cured if detected at an early stage. Be proactive. Be aware. Get educated. Early detection saves lives. Please call if you would like to participate in Wear Yellow Day or buy a table or more for the dinner!! We would really appreciate companies to buy the tables at the dinner. The dinner is a 4 course Western set and the show is going to be a lot of fun. The tables are priced at RM5000, RM 4000, RM3000 and RM2000 for the cause. Volunteers are also needed for these events. Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org directly for details.

WOMAD stands for World of Music, Arts and Dance, expressing the central aim of the WOMAD festival - to bring together and to celebrate many forms of music, arts and dance drawn from countries and cultures all over the world. WOMAD was originally inspired by Peter Gabriel: "Pure enthusiasm for music from around the world led us to the idea of WOMAD in 1980 and thus to the first WOMAD festival in 1982. The festivals have always been wonderful and unique occasions and have succeeded in introducing an international audience to many talented artists. "Equally important, the festivals have also allowed many different audiences to gain an insight into cultures other than their own through the enjoyment of music. Music is a universal language, it draws people together and proves, as well as anything, the stupidity of racism." As an organisation, WOMAD now works in many different ways, but our aims are always the same - at festivals, performance events, through recorded releases and through educational projects, we aim to excite, to inform, and to create awareness of the worth and potential of a multicultural society. The WOMAD Festivals Since the first festival in Shepton Mallett, England in 1982, WOMAD has presented more than 145 events in 22 different countries and islands. Having established its presence in the UK, WOMAD 's unique nomadic indentity evolved gradually during the eighties. In 1988, the festival began to be presented internationally, with initial events in Denmark and Canada. Since then, WOMAD 's worldwide profile has grown quickly, now embracing events in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, the Canary Islands, Sicily and the UK each year. The festivals are often weekend-long, family-oriented, active and diverse musical events, featuring simultaneous performances on two or three stages, including participatory workshops and special events for children, as well as music and dance sessions hosted by many of the visiting artists.
