Audi Qatar recently donated QR100,000 to Qatar Cancer Society (QCS) in support of the Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The donation is in line with Audi Qatar’s corporate social responsibility initiative to raise awareness of the disease in the country, with a percentage of the profits of cars sold in October donated to the organisation to assist in fighting and finding a cure for cancer.
“We are once again honoured to partner with the Qatar Cancer Society,” said Ahmed Shariefi, managing director of Audi Qatar. “Our goal is to continue to contribute to finding a cure for the disease and providing even the biggest possible joy to those experiencing and affected by the hardships of this disease.”
This marks the fifth year Audi Qatar has been associated with the Qatar Cancer Society in the efforts to raise awareness of the disease in the country.
Audi Qatar also participated in a Gala dinner organised by the Qatar Cancer Society and supported by providing vehicles to transport guests to and from the event.
“We express our gratitude for the generous donation by Audi Qatar in the field of charitable and humanitarian work, especially in the health sector, and for the support for the awareness campaign by the Qatar Cancer Society,” said Mona Ashkanani, general manager of Qatar Cancer Society.
“Working with our partners, such as Audi, will make the mission to prevent and curb the burden of cancer in Qatar an easier one by educating the community and supporting, empowering and advocating for the people living with cancer, and engaging professional development and scientific research in the field of cancer. Since its inception in 1997, Qatar Cancer Society has strived not to have a single patient on the waiting list for support,” added Ashkanani.
Qatar Cancer Society aims to make Qatar a leader in cancer prevention and seeks methods to control the disease in the country. Through its work, it also supports, empowers and advocates for individuals living with cancer and engages in professional development and cancer research.
