Qatar Cancer Society (QCS) and LuLu Hypermarket Qatar have signed an agreement to raise health awareness against cancer among the community and share guidelines on how to prevent it.
Under this agreement, LuLu Hypermarket will raise fund from the profit generated by selling selected products of local vendors as well as LuLu’s exclusive imported products, and the same will be donated to QCS.
LuLu has taken the initiative with the support of local vendors.
The agreement was signed by Mona Ashknani, director of Support Services Department of QCS and Shaijan M O, regional director of LuLu Hypermarket, Qatar.
The agreement will also include holding lectures and training courses for LuLu’s employees and introducing them to the types of tests required for each type of cancer and teaches them about the importance of a healthy lifestyle to avoid cancer.
As part of the ongoing ‘Blossom Campaign’ by QCS to raise awareness of breast cancer, LuLu’s staff in all branches are wearing pink ribbon to promote awareness on breast cancer and to encourage women for periodic diagnosis of the disease.
In addition, LuLu supports QCS’ programmes that are organised from time to time, throughout the year.
Ashknani congratulated the initiative of LuLu Hypermarket and indicated that the partnership between two sides was to strengthen efforts to combat cancer and raise awareness about it.
She added that, in order to fight cancer, there is a need to organise awareness programmes all over Qatar in co-operation with leading organisations, and it should be done continually.
She emphasised the importance of permanent co-operation with all institutions in Qatar, pointing to the importance of community partnerships in fighting cancer as QCS can’t operate in isolation.
“We are quite happy to sign the co-operation agreement and join hands with QCS in their continued effort towards combating cancer. QCS deserves deep appreciation for their great effort towards this noble cause,” added Shaijan.
