Are you thinking about making a kind donation to Al Jalila Foundation in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month?
Here is some more information about the project:
What is Al Jalila Foundation?
Al Jalila Foundation is a global philanthropic organisation founded by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, in November 2012 to position the UAE at the forefront of medical innovation.
Al Jalila Foundation is fully funded by the generosity of donors and 100% of funds donated are invested into medical research, education and treatment to transform lives.
What is Breast Cancer Awareness month?
According to the World Health Organisation, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast
cancer in their lifetime and approximately 1.4 million women worldwide are diagnosed each year. In the UAE, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women and studies show the average age of diagnoses is 10 years younger than elsewhere in the world. These statistics reaffirm the critical need to continuously support breast cancer research to keep up with the latest advances in treatment to save patients’ lives.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an international health campaign every October to increase awareness of the disease and raise funds for research into its cause,
prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. The month-long campaign is symbolised by the colour pink and around the world pink has become synonymous with breast cancer awareness.
How will my donation be used by Al Jalila Foundation?
100% of your kind donation on noon will go directly to Al Jalila Foundation to support breast cancer patients and invest in breast cancer research in the UAE.
How much should I donate?
You can donate any amount you like from 5, 10, 15, 25 or 50 AED at the check-out page of your shopping experience on noon.
