CBB Supports the Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign in October 2017

12th October 2017, Manama, Bahrain – Underlining the importance of social responsibility and spreading healthcare awareness in the Kingdom of Bahrain, the CBB is taking part in the social ongoing campaign “Manama – The Pink City’ by decorating its building with pink lights, which will remain lit during the full month of October.

The campaign, which was launched by the Bahrain Cancer Society as part of their annual October Breast Cancer month, aims to spread awareness about Cancer and encourage women to do early screening, especially since early detection is a major contributor to successful treatment.

In line with the awareness campaign, and in support of the community initiatives that promote raising health awareness in Bahrain, the CBB is launching educational and awareness programs for its employees focusing on the importance of early detection and leading a healthy lifestyle, as well as help raise funds towards the cause through sales of campaign souvenirs.

In addition, a number of CBB employees will be joining the annual walkathon organized by Bahrain Cancer Society for the 6th consecutive year on Friday 13th of October 2017.
