Can you make a difference?

Being diagnosed with breast cancer is not a death sentence. However women in the Middle East face many challenges that influence their chances of survival and in many cases their diagnosis is a death sentence.

 

Some of these challenges include, not being able to afford treatment, not having access to the right information and being under the care of inexperienced, unspecialised and sometimes unscrupulous doctors.

 

By getting involved you will be helping to support women living and working in the Middle East, regardless of nationality, access breast cancer services and be helping us to improve treatment and care.

Who we help


All women living and working in the Middle East can benefit from our activities and we aim to reach as many women as possible through the help of regional organisations and partners.


Our main focus is the provision of financial support to enable women to access breast cancer services, surgery and treatment. We do not provide financial support for surgery and treatment for women who have entitlement for treatment under their country's national healthcare systems. Therefore the great majority of women that we provide assistance to in this way, are expatriates.
