I am so proud to be part of this amazing community project.
There has been a culture of silence about breast cancer in the Indian and Sri Lankan community. This has caused fear, denial and possibly the lives of many women.
As a result, women from Indian and Sri Lankan backgrounds have one of the lowest breast screening rates in New South Wales.
The Pink Sari Project, which is led by NSW Multicultural Health Communication Service and its partner organisations, with support from Blacktown Arts Centre and Blacktown City Council aims to raise awareness about breast screening among the Indian and Sri Lankan communities. Portraits in Pink is a photographic exhibition to celebrate 14 breast cancer survivors from the Indian and Sri Lankan community in New South Wales.
