Lulu Hypermarket extends support to QCS


Lulu Hypermarket has supported ‘Blossom Campaign’ that was launched by Qatar Cancer Society (QCS) on October 1, to raise awareness about breast cancer during the month.





Lulu has launched a campaign under the title ‘Shop and Donate’ by allocating part of the sales proceeds of more than 700 products during October to support QCS awareness programmes.

This donation is being given as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and to support Qatar’s National Vision 2030, which aims to build an advanced society capable of sustaining its development and providing a high standard of living for its people to achieve its long-term goals.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and as part of their campaign, Lulu showroom staff have marked their participation by wearing a pink ribbon, the worldwide symbol.

The aim is to raise awareness among the customers and staff alike and encourage them to adopt healthy lifestyles to prevent cancers.

Director of Resources Development Department at QCS, Dr. Dera Al Dosari, said:

“Wearing Lulu’s staff the pink ribbon to support QCS’ efforts and to spread awareness epically is not the first time Lulu supports QCS. This initiative is considered a contribution from Lulu hypermarket in achieving QCS’ vision to be the community partnership platform to make Qatar a leader in cancer prevention and its burden control, and it’s  mission.”

“We seek to prevent cancer and control its burden in Qatar by working with our partners to educate the community and to support, empower, and advocate for individuals living with cancer. We want to engage in the professional development and scientific research combating cancer,” said Dr. Deara.

He thanked the management and staff of Lulu Hypermarket for their continued efforts in support of QCS in its cancer awareness initiatives and addressing the needs of cancer patients who cannot afford the treatment.   He advised all state institutions to support QCS, working in one of the most critical healthcare fields.



“The cooperation also include the participation of QCS’s volunteers to inform Lulu shoppers about the campaign and encourage them on the importance of  early detection. Many thanks to Lulu hypermarket for support,” he added.
