Breast cancer awareness event at Mall of Qatar

The Peninsula

Ooredoo, Qatar Cancer Society, and KidzMondo, have teamed up to host two-day special breast cancer awareness event from today.

The event at KidzMondo at Mall Of Qatar from 3pm to 6pm, will include special activities for children to help educate them on the importance of breast cancer awareness, as well as create crafts for their parents.

To encourage a healthy lifestyle for all participants, Qatar Cancer Society will also organise a ‘pink walk’ for the children around KidzMondo.

Manar Khalifa Al Muraikhi, Ooredoo Director of PR and Corporate Communications, said: “We’re proud to be teaming with two organisations in Qatar to create awareness on this important issue, not just for children, but for parents as well. We encourage everyone with kids to come on down this weekend, to join in the fun and educate themselves and their families on the lifesaving services available in Qatar.”

Ooredoo has a history of working with the Qatar Cancer Society to help raise awareness on the disease in Qatar, and together the organisations opened a state-of-the-art cancer awareness centre as part of an agreement worth QR30m.

The Ooredoo Cancer Awareness Centre is a first-of-its kind in the Middle East, and is playing an important role in the national strategy for cancer and encouraging a healthy lifestyle for all, which is a cornerstone of the Qatar National Vision 2030. Ooredoo is also a long-term partner of KidzMondo, the interactive learning experience for children with an indoor ‘edutainment’ theme park.

Ooredoo has a dedicated ‘OoredooZone’ in the park, which shows children how a nationwide network of towers and cables helps them to connect to the world using their smartphone, and showcases the interesting daily work of Ooredoo engineers in supporting the Ooredoo Supernet.
