Q-Auto the official dealer of Audi in Qatar has joined hands with Qatar Cancer Society in solidarity of breast cancer awareness month. The brand is showing their support by representing the month’s theme through a pink decorative design of their main showroom on Salwa road.

We are happy to work with QCS in their endeavors to help generate awareness about breast cancer, particularly because cases of the disease have increased alarmingly in the region over the past decade. As part of our ongoing corporate social responsibility, we hope that our current campaign will make a lasting difference in the Qatar community and that our efforts will help encourage others to join the fight against breast cancer.’

At Qatar Cancer Society, we have been working towards increasing breast cancer activities during the month of October. Our goal is to shed light on the reality that breast cancer is a treatable disease and not necessarily fatal if detected early. We also would like to extend a special thank you to all the institutions and companies who have supported us during our awareness campaigns and who have succeeded in helping us educate the community in Qatar on all types of Cancer.’
