Pupils went the extra mile to persuade parents to avail free screenings offered by Burjeel Holdings’ mammogram truck
A private school in Abu Dhabi turned pink and held vibrant activities as part of a day-long campaign to raise awareness of breast cancer.
Held during a parent-teacher meeting, students of Abu Dhabi Indian School highlighted the importance of early screening and detection of one of the most common cancers among women globally.
