Speaking on the occasion, the Director pandamart, Ibad Ahmed shared, “In Asia, Pakistan has the highest rate of breast cancer; to put it in numbers 1 in every 9 women in Pakistan has a lifetime risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer. Most cases go unnoticed due to late diagnosis and delayed referral to appropriate facilities. Given the stigma attached to breast cancer in our society, foodpanda along with Reckitt is playing its part to raise awareness and help women examine themselves as the first line of defense against breast cancer.”
The Director Marketing APAC foodpanda, Javier Mauricio Delgado Granados, shared the same sentiment and said, “Through this partnership foodpanda and Reckitt will break the taboos surrounding breast cancer and encourage women from all walks of life to examine themselves and seek help if they notice any changes to nip the bud.
