Meta, Colombia – GeoPark marked its arrival in Meta department by holding medical drives for women from Barranca de Upía and Cabuyaro to access health services for the prevention and diagnosis of cancer.

Last July, in partnership with the Liga contra el Cáncer anti-cancer group, GeoPark held medical drives over two days oriented to self-care and early diagnosis of this disease among women. More than 220 women from the two Meta municipalities were received medical attention, 126 of them for breast screenings and 108 for cervical screenings.

The activities are part of GeoPark’s ‘Brave Woman’ program, whose goal is to recognize the contribution of women in the construction of more equitable societies. The program reflects the Company’s commitment to promoting the empowerment of rural women, as well as equality, inclusion and diversity among all its stakeholders.

“We are proud to start our operations in Meta department by promoting initiatives that lead us to positively impact the lives of our neighboring communities. Ensuring their well-being shows our commitment to becoming their neighbor and partner of choice,” GeoPark Neighbor Relations executive Margareth Puentes said. “We thank the Mayors of Barranca de Upía and Cabuyaro for supporting us in the coordination of this medical drive and the Liga contra el Cáncer for accompanying us in protecting the health and well-being of our neighbors.”

The medical drives show GeoPark’s commitment to creating a story of good neighborliness in the territories it operates in. As a company committed to community development, GeoPark will continue to implement initiatives like these

that in addition to promoting the well-being and quality of life of neighboring communities, contribute to the fulfillment of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
