The Pink Caravan - القافة الوردية
 The Pink Caravan is a Pan UAE initiative launched by the Friends of Cancer Patients organisation to commemorate the occasion of the 10th anniversary celebrations of the charity. Through this noble initiative, we are strongly campaigning towards bringing about awareness of breast cancer in the country.

The Pink Caravan campaign is specifically designed to raise awareness about breast cancer and to encourage women to perform self-examinations and go for regular medical check-ups. The campaign will run annually, focusing on all areas across the UAE, including remote and outlying areas, as well as city suburbs. Around 125 riders join forces and cross over 320 km each year, garnering support across many different sectors, bringing together school and university students, corporates, ambassadors and royalty. The Pink Caravan ride is well received and has become a recognized brand of hope throughout the UAE.
