Breast cancer awareness initiative

In a bid to spread awareness on breast cancer, Abu Dhabi’s Bawabat Al Sharq Mall has launched a campaign to pay tribute to women battling the disease, portraying them as real-life superheroes. The campaign is also calling upon the public, especially women, to show their solidarity with breast cancer patients, while also soliciting them to get regularly tested. Every woman who stops by will get a chance to pick up a present from a special box which hides many great prizes such as vouchers and other gifts. An awareness workshop is also scheduled, in addition to a henna stand. As part of breast cancer month in October, the campaign is currently underway from 2pm to 10pm everyday until Sunday, October 9.
