Leading retailer LuLu Hypermarket has donated QR150,000 to Qatar Cancer Society (QCS) through 'Shop and Donate' campaign to support the ongoing programmes and plans of the QCS.
The fund was handed over to the authorities of QCS recently at a ceremony organised at LuLu Group’s Regional Headquarters on the D-Ring Road.
LuLu Hypermarket has been supporting QCS year after year for raising awareness on cancer and promoting a culture of early detection, as part of its social responsibility. The ‘Shop and Donate’ campaign was launched in LuLu outlets last October, whereby they allocated part of its sales proceeds of some products for QCS activities. Every year LuLu Group has been repeating this exercise for supporting QCS activities such as imparting awareness to the general public or supporting the treatment of cancer patients.
Mona Ashknani, general manager of QCS thanked the officials of LuLu Group Qatar for their continuous support to the cause of charity, and said that they always do their best to support the awareness efforts led by QCS in its ongoing fight against cancer.
She expressed happiness over this co-operation, which supports the society’s vision for a community partnership platform for making Qatar a leader in cancer prevention and its burden control.
She hoped that this co-operation would continue for the benefit of society and the nation at large, calling on all state institutions to be partners with the charity in achieving its goals in the local community, especially with the community’s need for further spread of awareness of cancer and to change stereotypes around it.
Shaijan M O, regional director of LuLu Group Qatar said, “LuLu Group always looks forward to become a key partner in all social responsibility programmes that benefit everyone residing in Qatar, especially its co-operation with Qatar Cancer Society as a responsible retailer of the region. We strongly believe that we have a significant role to play in society in the health sector as well as in charitable and humanitarian work.” He added that LuLu Group would continue to support Qatar Cancer Society in future as well and would spare its best efforts to enable QCS achieve its mission and goals.
