Making the announcement, General Manager Ferghal Purcell, said on behalf of both hotels, “We are delighted to support Pink Caravan Breast Cancer Initiative. The organization has been playing an instrumental role in the UAE in the fight against breast cancer. Awareness of the disease and the need for early diagnosis play a key role in improving survival rates. To help raise funds for the cause we will be placing special donation boxes at the reception areas of both our hotels to allow guests to contribute to the charity from 1st to 31st October 2015. In addition, all staff at our hotels will be wearing pink ribbons throughout the month. Pink ribbons will also be distributed among our guests along with flyers during this period.”
Dr Sawsan Al Madhi, Director General of Friends of Cancer Patients and Head of the Medical and Awareness Committee of Pink Caravan, stated, “The Pink Caravan functions under the umbrella of the ‘KASHF’ Program, which provides information and guidance to facilitate the early detection of many types of cancers, Pink Caravan, KASHF’s flagship initiative focuses on raising awareness and education around breast cancer detection and offers high quality free breast cancer screening across the UAE. Pink Caravan’s vision in the near future is to give free breast cancer screenings throughout the year, via a mobile mammography unit, CareVan. October is a very significant month for breast cancer initiatives globally and we are truly grateful to The Ajman Palace Hotel and Coral Beach Resort Sharjah for extending their support to the cause.”
