We have all heard of breast cancer but most of us are unsure of the causes, treatments and general knowledge regarding the issue.

As part of our corporate social responsibility, we wanted to highlight to the community, the importance of encouraging women to go for check-ups as early detection is a crucial part in predicting the prognosis for the disease. Therefore we offered the use of our Al Maha function room at Hilton Ras Al Khaimah Resort & Spa to conduct free breast cancer screenings.

This was the biggest turnout so far. We believe strongly in the importance of breast cancer awareness and that early diagnosis is vital. The big public participation by Hilton Team Members, resort guests and the local community demonstrated the health awareness and our obligations towards each other.

The successful event highlighted the importance of early detection of the disease to beat breast cancer and encourage women to come forward for the routine check-ups. We are very proud to be a part of it.
