MAPFRE joins the fight against breast cancer
Team building exercises and pink banners, among other initiatives to raise awareness of this disease
Once again this year MAPFRE joins in with commemorating the Day Against Breast Cancer, October 19, with a global information and prevention campaign and a variety of initiatives for company employees all over the world to join in with during October.
In Malta, MAPFRE Middlesea held a team building exercise with all the staff wherein everyone dressed in Pink and all the proceeds will go towards the Pink October Fund.
In addition, to support all the women already affected by this disease, MAPFRE
changed the color of the corporate profiles on its social networks and the group’s principal website to pink, and in Malta we placed pink banners outside the Head office building.
In Spain, MAPFRE will support and participate in the work of the Spanish Association Against Cancer (AECC) by installing information booths on behalf of the organization in 20 of the centers the insurance company has around Spain, where volunteers from the company will hand out pink bows and other symbols of the fight against breast cancer.
They have also illuminated the MAPFRE Tower in Barcelona and the company’s offices in Malaga and Seville in pink.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women all over the world, prevention and early detection is the best way of fighting against this disease –which also affects men, although the incidence is lower for males. MAPFRE’s health insurance offers special preventive and rehabilitative medical services for the early diagnosis of breast ailments.
This is one of the company’s initiatives for raising awareness of and improving the health and well-being of its employees, their families and society, a goal it also promotes via its corporate Healthy Company program. It is also another of the many activities within MAPFRE’s Corporate Volunteering Program, run by Fundación MAPFRE, which can be accessed at www.middlesea.com/insurance-mt/about-us/fundacion-mapfre
