Digicel support Pink Friday for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Digicel Interview - Cancer Awareness Month 9th October, 2015.Still005PRESS RELEASE – Digicel has thrown its support behind the Ministry of Health’s Pink Friday initiate in observance of breast cancer awareness month in October.

Every Friday during the month of October the Ministry of Health through the Bureau of Health Promotion advocates that individuals and companies should promote the wearing of something pink in recognition, the victims, survivors and persons affected by breast cancer.

“We all in one way or another have been affected by the disease, if not having someone in our circle directly affected or someone we know of. We have seen what it does to families and for us as a corporate citizen we are ensuring we are part of the movement to fight this disease.” So said Louis Victor, Marketing Executive at Digicel.

Digicel, she said has also collaborated on other cancer initiatives such as the recently held “Walk for a cure”, CFL’s Yoplait Walk on November 1st, and the Wave’s “Men in Heels.”

“By getting the staff involved we believe that it creates that greater sensitization about how we can prevent the disease and by everyone really representing today in their pink it is a sign that we are all in this fight together.” Victor added.

Family Life Educator with the Ministry of Health Nadiege Smith said the Ministry of Health has invited key stakeholders to support the fight against breast cancer and what Digicel has done is embrace this initiative to help create awareness.

“Part of the Ministry of Health’s mandate is to have inter-sectoral participation. The Ministry of Health cannot fight breast cancer or any other disease on it’s own and we need the support of private organizations and line ministries and today Digicel is clearly showing that sort of commitment to society, to the community and to the population on a whole.” Smith stated.

Digicel came in for high praise for supporting the Pink Friday initiative and the Bureau of Health Promotion is looking forward to more corporate partners and individuals supporting the Pink Friday awareness effort.

  1. You obviously have never work in an office. Do you even have a job? In fact in many companies of "1st world countries" they don't even have a lunch room and staff are forced to eat at their desk. So if you ever get a job at an office prepare to be shocked and amazed...office workers eat.

  3. Where is the professionalism at work, on most of those desk persons are seen eating food while they work. This is the reason why we are considered third world. Why is it necessary to eat on the desk and to have your photos plastered all over the world. Nevertheless, good initiative and proud to see the support for breast cancer!
