Second in series, the students of University College of Bahrain (UCB) organized a 2-day campaign for Breast Cancer Awareness on 26th & 27th October 2010. In these 2 days, students set-up the stalls, where homemade cupcakes, dough-nuts, handmade jewelry and many more items were sold to raise funds in support of this cause. All sale proceeds raised by the students will be donated to the Think Pink Organization.
To add flavor to the campaign there was a PS3 gaming contest that was held in the UCB cafeteria. Shaikh Ebrahim Al Khalifa, Executive Director, sent out a note of encouragement to the UCB students mentioning, “we are quite pleased with the way our faculty, staff and students were united in the name of such a noble humanitarian cause, and raising awareness about, and funds for such cause is one of the utmost benevolent acts anyone could do for humankind.
This is one of the many student ventures where we have proved our maximum support and we encourage more of the likes” he concluded.
