Mediterranean Bank once again joined the Pink October movement in the fight against breast cancer by organizing a dress down day for all its employees among all the different departments and branches. In keeping with the ‘pink’ theme associated with the Breast Cancer Awareness month, all staff members were encouraged to come to work in pink, as well as accessorizing their outfit with the signature pink ribbon associated with the movement. In addition to this, each department took a group photo to commemorate the event.
According to the World Health Organization, breast cancer is the most common type of cancer affecting women worldwide. Moreover, men can also be diagnosed with breast cancer. Stemming from this statistic, every October sees a worldwide campaign about this disease, which involves such factors as bringing awareness and raising funds.
All the proceeds from this event will be donated to Pink October Malta, which is a breast cancer initiative created by the Marigold Foundation. In doing so, Mediterranean Bank is doing its part to join the fight against breast cancer, in the hope that a cure will be found sometime in the near future.
We encourage anyone who may be susceptible to the disease to take the necessary precautions in detecting it in its early stages. A decision as small as booking an appointment could be the determining factor between an early and a late diagnosis
