This year Safe and Sound are giving away free mammograms to low income women in Dubai, women who ordinarily would not be able to afford this life saving scan which normally costs between AED 400 – 750, as a result of the very succesfull 2009 Walkathon which you all so heartfully supported.
If you can think of a woman, or women (you can nominate as many as you want) who wouldn’t ordinarily be able to afford what can be a life saving scan and who fits the nomination criteria (see below) then all you have to do is follow the instructions below. We will then be in touch to tell you when you can come along and collect the vouchers that she can use to get her mammogram at participating hospitals. You will also need to assume some responsibility in making sure that she avails of the voucher.
- women above 40
- resident of uae
How to nominate someone:
- identify a woman who fits the criteria
- speak to her about the project
- get her approval
- get a copy of her ID, be it passport or pataka (basically anything that clearly shows her name and date of birth)
- email us with her details (name, date of birth and nationality) and your name and contact details
Our email address is email@example.com
Please note vouchers will be allocated on a first come first serve basis and until quantities last.
Nominations need to be submitted before Thursday, 17th June 2010.
