Ufone Pledges Support To Foster Awareness On Breast Cancer
As the world observes October as the Breast Cancer Awareness month globally, Pakistani telecom company Ufone plays its part in drawing attention towards the urgency of early detection and treatment of this disease by lighting up ‘Ufone Tower’ in bright pink colors, which is a landmark building in the heart of Islamabad.

This initiative is taken to create awareness on of breast cancer and check the spread of the disease amongst women in Pakistan. Globally breast cancer is one of the leading causes of death in women. Unfortunately, Pakistan ranks as one of the highest in Asia in terms of the number of patients diagnosed with the disease and the numbers are rapidly growing every year. Approximately 1.38 million new cases are diagnosed annually and nearly 0.5 million women succumb to the disease every year in Pakistan due to late detection.
Every year, Ufone Tower is lit up in pink colors to show solidarity towards the cause and to raises awareness through sessions on self-examination for early diagnosis to increase survival chances. Moreover, these sessions also focus on denouncing common myths that surround this disease, and effective measures are sought to check the spread of this life-threatening disease.

The initiative comes in line with Ufone’s long-term commitment towards the wellbeing of its users as is evident from its cherished motto of ‘Tum Hi Tou Ho’!
