Dozens of prayers and gifts were offered to drivers and onlookers who took the time to stop during a Breast Cancer Awareness outreach activity led by Inter-American Division (IAD) staff outside the IAD headquarter offices in Miami, Florida, last week.
“This is all about bringing awareness, comfort and support to anyone who is undergoing treatment or knows someone suffering from breast cancer,” said Jainie Pita, human resources director of the IAD and main organizer of the activity held on Oct. 31, 2018.
“Nearly two dozen individuals stopped to share their story and be prayed for throughout the day,” said Pita. Many of those who stopped registered their names to be prayed for by the staff and to be contacted in the coming days, added Pita.
Some 150 gift bags containing water, breast cancer literature, a pin and pen, and health magazines were distributed during the morning commute time and at a nearby mall in the afternoon, said Pita.
