About us

  • "Picture The Cure" is a not-for-profit community based organization conceived by Irina Souiki in 2005. Now in its fifth year of existence, Picture the Cure is in the process of acquiring registered charity status, while maintaining its annual fundraising activities. 100% of our proceeds are to be donated to cancer related charitable intiatives and qualified donees to be determined.

    Picture the Cure's mission is to raise the awareness, bring dedicated people together and honour cancer survivors and victims. We believe that our initiative is a unique way of opening new horizons for professional, emerging artists or photography hobbyists and in the same time giving everyone the occasion to do something bold for this cause.

    Our governing document is our Constitution, also available for download via this link.
