Thank you for being part of E for Endometriosis’s first charity event in conjunction with the fasting month! It was also Singapore’s first Islamically inclined sharing session on matters relating to Endometriosis. All proceeds from the registration sale go to Madrasah Aljunied Al-Islamiah, one of the oldest surviving madrasahs in Singapore that boasts an illustrious line of alumni of prominent Islamic religious leaders in Singapore and Southeast Asia.
With your support, a total of SGD659.40 was successfully collected throughout the registration period. Another SGD20 was collected post-registration. I will be passing the cheque to the principal of Madrasah Aljunied Al-Islamiah next week and it will be documented on my Instagram as an attestation that the amanah has been relayed.
From the event’s survey, while 76% of the participants know that painful menstruation (senggugut) is not normal, only 23% of them are aware of Endometriosis. This shows that creating Endometriosis awareness is of significant importance because many have not heard of it despite 1 out of 10 women suffering from it. That equates to around 190 million reproductive-age women and girls globally! Imagine how many more women could have Endometriosis yet suffer in silence because they do not know that such a condition exists; thinking or worst made to think that it is not a big deal. Heartbreaking isn’t it?
The comments are also well noted and improvements are in sight. It is also motivating to know that the event has met your expectations.
The event is streamed live on my YouTube channel, Namira Mohamad.
