The Pink Caravan is an initiative launched by the Friends of Cancer Patients (FOCP), during 2011, to commemorate the occasion of their 10th anniversary celebrations. The campaign was launched in February 2011, under the patronage of His Highness Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Member of the UAE Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah, and the support of Her Highness Sheikha Jawaher Bint Mohammed AI-Qasimi, President of the Supreme Council for Family Affairs, Honorary President of FOCP and wife of the Ruler of Sharjah.Through this noble initiative, they are strongly campaigning towards bringing together an awareness of breast cancer in the country.

The Pink Caravan is under the umbrella of the «KASHF» program, which is an initiative to promote awareness of the importance of early detection of cancer. KASHF also works towards providing information and guidance towards the early detection of many types of cancer, i.e breast cancer, cervical cancer, prostate, melanoma, and colon cancer. Their first project will be flagged off through the Pink Caravan Campaign.

The Pink Caravan campaign is specifically designed to raise awareness of breast cancer and to encourage women to perform selfexaminations and go for regular medical checkups. The campaign will run annually until 2014, focusing on all areas across the UAE, including remote and outlying areas, as well as city suburbs. The funds raised during this awareness campaign will ensure the availability of the latest technology in the early screening and detection of breast cancer, making it accessible to all women in the UAE.
