Al Shirawi’s continued emphasis on social responsibility was led forward with yet another initiative, wherein a presentation was organised on the 30th of October 2011 at the Ras Al Khor office to raise Breast Cancer awareness.
The awareness program included a detailed presentation and a lecture session underscoring the possible causes, methods of diagnosis and addressed the importance of performing periodical examinations in order to help the early detection of Breast Cancer.
Dr. Hijaza Hanzar from the Rashid Hospital presented the lecture and also answered many of the queries from the attendees. Information brochures and booklets were handed out during the session. In addition to this, pink ribbons, which symbolize ‘Breast Cancer awareness’, were handed out and any voluntary contributions given were donated to Rashid Hospital.
