SJW General Studies Students & Staff Raise Funds for Pink Caravan

6 months

The HCT-Sharjah campuses’ General Studies Department has a long history of supporting the Sharjah Women’s campus (SJW) Breast Cancer Awareness campaign, ‘Stand up to Breast Cancer’, and this year was no different.

Students from the M.UN (Model United Nations) Debate Club teamed up with other General Studies students to sell pink ribbons and home-made pink cupcakes, pink make-up … in fact anything even vaguely tinged pink! All received volunteer hours for their efforts.

In total, AED 2,420 was raised and these funds will be used to support a mobile screening unit for Sharjah and the Northern Emirates managed by Pink Caravan, a Sharjah-based charity.

Narges Faridi and Gail AlHafidh would like to thank all those who contributed through their purchases and donations:  it was a great team effort for a very important cause.
