Sharjah: The Pink Caravan Ride (PCR) has dedicated nine fixed clinics across six emirates that will offer free breast cancer screenings and aid in increasing community awareness of the disease. The facilities will operate from 4pm to 10pm between January 20 and February 10 and give the public the opportunity to receive hassle-free testing free of charge.
The pan-UAE breast cancer awareness ride organised by the Friends of Cancer Patients (FOCP), will be offering these free medical screenings at the fixed clinics with the intention to cater to a broader segment of the community. The medical clinics will be opened to the public around the UAE prior to the launch of the 11th edition of the annual Pink Caravan Ride, taking place between February 4 and 10.

In Dubai, citizens and residents can head to Lulu Hypermarket in Al Barsha, and Mirdif City Centre to take advantage of the free medical screening, while in Ajman, the fixed clinic will be providing early detection for both men and women in China Mall.
