Events during month of October to highlight importance of screening
Al Ahli Bank of Kuwait (ABK) today announced several initiatives during October in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This important annual international campaign is held each October to increase awareness and understanding of the disease and raise funds for research into its diagnosis, prevention and treatment.
During October, ABK female customers and staff will receive discounts on mammogram screening tests at Kuwait’s leading hospitals and clinics, additionally ABK female staff aged over 40 will get a free mammogram screening at Al Zahra Health Center.
During October, the Bank will also raise awareness of the disease by sending out weekly cancer awareness messages on Instagram and internally to staff with facts and tips regarding the disease. Alongside these initiatives, the Bank will distribute pink ribbons across ABK’s branches throughout the month in recognition of the campaign.
ABK is the main sponsor of the Cancer Aware Nation (CAN) marathon, which will be held later in the year to support the cause and raise funds for further research and the development of preventative treatment.
