To mark Mother’s Day on March 21, Pink Caravan – a pan-UAE breast cancer awareness initiative by the Friends of Cancer Patients (FOCP), has unveiled a new offering for residents across the UAE, to shower their love on their wives, sisters, colleagues, friends and mothers with the priceless gift of good health.
Launching for the first time this year, Pink Caravan’s ‘Pink Care’ coupon unwraps health perks in the form of a mammogram screening at a dedicated medical mobile clinic while also enabling purchasers to be an integral part of Pink Caravan’s mission to raise community awareness on key issues surrounding breast health and breast cancer.
Apart from philanthropic individuals and organisations who regularly contribute to Pink Caravan’s fundraising efforts to ensure quality treatment for breast cancer patients, community members in the UAE can now avail of the new Pink Caravan coupons throughout the year to support this noble cause.
The Dhs350 coupon also reinforces Pink Caravan’s key messaging of the importance of early detection of breast cancer which improves chances of survival, offers the best chance of effective treatment, and leads to better quality of life.
Proceeds of coupon sales will also support research efforts in breast cancer prevention and treatment and go towards improving the lives of those affected by breast cancer.
For those who have been putting off their routine breast screenings due to concerns over COVID-19 exposure, the Pink Caravan’s Medical Mobile Clinic located at the Supreme Council for Family Affairs (SCFA) in Sharjah ensures a safe place of care with its enhanced health safety protocols in line with the directives of the UAE health authorities.
The Pink Caravan will continue to offer free health screenings to women and men of all nationalities in the UAE during its annual Pink Caravan Ride, which will be held in the fourth quarter of this year.
