Calling all Western Cape women… go for a free health screening at your nearest Western Cape Government (WCG) Health facility, and you could stand a chance to win a ticket to the BONA Women of Worth Mini Make-Over Event in Gugulethu at the end of September. BONA is helping to put women’s health at the top of the agenda by partnering with Western Cape Government Health and their Women of Worth campaign. As the primary caregivers, women often neglect their own wellbeing, putting others’ needs before their own. But by improving our health, the health of the whole community is ultimately improved. The aim of the Women of Worth campaign is raise awareness of all the free health services and preventative health screenings available at your nearest WCG Health facility.
The Women of Worth Event
On Saturday, 26 September, BONA will be hosting the Women of Worth Mini Make-Over Event in Gugulethu that will feature a great line-up of motivational speakers on women’s issues. Attendees will also be treated to a mini make-up makeover and a great goodie bag. To win a ticket to the event, simply visit your nearest participating WCG Health facility (from the list below) for any of the free health tests and checks (also listed below). At the WCG Health facility, you will be given a Women of Worth flyer with a number on that you need to SMS to enter the competition to win a ticket to the event.
