ORANA Res­i­dents of In­dian Sub-con­ti­nen­tal Her­itage (ORISCON) held an in­au­gu­ral event to raise aware­ness of breast can­cer and the im­por­tance of early de­tec­tion, in­clud­ing a spe­cial visit from the Groovy Booby Bus and Pink Sari rep­re­sen­ta­tives.

Un­til a few years ago, women from the In­dian sub­con­ti­nent had the low­est breast screen­ing rates in NSW. Since Pink Sari be­gan, these rates have sig­nif­i­cantly im­proved.

The men or­gan­ised and ran the fam­ily event, in­clud­ing the set up and cook­ing, so that the ladies could en­joy them­selves. The women all en­joyed a few games of net­ball, which saw friendly ri­valry be­tween the teams – Nepal, Sri Lanka, Fiji and In­dia.
