InterContinental® Doha The City has launched its Pink October activities to raise awareness on Breast Cancer, to inform the public about the importance of early detection, and the different initiatives and programmes available in the country dedicated to this cause.
This initiative is held in partnership with the National Breast and Bowel Cancer Screening Programme ‘Screen For Life’ led by the Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC). The Screen For Life outreach programme team held a presentation about the importance of early detection and gave an overview of the screening services that the programme provides.
A sweet pink afternoon tea was held at InterContinental® Doha The City to kick off the activities. Media, bloggers, and influencers gathered to taste the savoury items and sweet treats presented as a preview to the treats that will be served during the month of October at the hotel’s Lobby Lounge and The Square.
According to General Manager Gilles Longuet, this is the third year of InterContinental® Doha The City’s Pink October initiative and they continue to support the fight against Breast Cancer with an annual awareness campaign.
We aim to raise awareness among our guests and colleagues about the importance of early detection and screening through our Pink themed activities and our collaboration with Screen For Life. Aside from the activities for guests and the community, we will be holding a private presentation for all hotel team members in order to raise awareness internally as well.’
Guests were given the opportunity to tour the inside of the mobile screening unit that provides the mammogram service. They also received giveaways sponsored by Woojooh.
Complimentary screening for eligible women will be held at the Event Centre entrance on 8 and 30 October for residents and neighbours of the hotel’s surrounding community. A representative from the Breast and Bowel Cancer Screening Programme Screen For Life will be present at the Lobby Lounge during the screening schedules to help answer any questions about the programme and the screening services it provides.
Together with Screen For Life, InterContinental® Doha The City aims to educate guests and the local community on the importance of early detection through screening.
