The unique mission experience will give you a powerful understanding of breast cancer's global impact. You'll visit hospitals, meet with cancer survivors and be given a chance to influence government officials in policy-making. Cultural excursions will enhance your connection with the people of the region. You'll help garner support for the Fund. But most importantly, you'll be bringing a message of prevention, healing and hope to women in need.
Mission Delegation trips help support Komen’s Global Promise Fund. Just last year Komen embarked on its first mission delegation trip to Africa. We led a group of dedicated breast cancer advocates to Ghana where we participated in global breast cancer symposium and we celebrated the opening of a breast cancer learning laboratory at a new hospital in Kumasi.
