Islamabad, 29 November 2021 (TDI): A team of the Royal Thai Embassy in Pakistan distributed brochures of the Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign. The campaign was spearheaded by Chakkrid Krachaiwong, the Ambassador of Thailand to Pakistan, as a representation of the Thai-Pak collaboration.
During the campaign, approximately 10,000 brochures of the Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign were handed over to the Pink Ribbon Organization, Pakistan. The Pink Ribbon Organization is a one-of-a-kind self-sustained, non-funded Pakistani organization.
It aims to create awareness amongst the masses as well as generate community engagement for early detection, prevention, and easy access to treatment of Breast Cancer.
Breast Cancer has seriously threatened the well-being of Pakistani women, often fatally because of lack of awareness. According to an estimate 1 in 10 women might develop Breast Cancer in their lifetime. Research shows that early diagnosis can increase the chances of successful treatment and eventually save lives.
The Thai Embassy in Pakistan is proactively engaged in various ventures pertaining to charity work to assist underprivileged segments of Pakistani society. Earlier the Embassy collaborated with the Thai Consulate in Karachi to organize a charity walk.
More recently, it also participated in the Pakistan Foreign Office Women Organization’s (PFOWA) Charity Bazaar, organized in Islamabad to further enhance Thai-Pak cooperation.
Pakistan and Thailand celebrated the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between the two countries. The two partner countries have enjoyed long-term cordial ties. Thai-Pak collaboration encompasses a wide range of domains that have economic, trade, political, cultural as well as educational contours for the sake of mutual benefit.
