The whole of October marks Breast Cancer Awareness month, encouraging women to check their breasts regularly and to get a screening if there are any signs of abnormalities.

Around the UAE, there are plenty of events and initiatives taking place throughout the month to promote awareness of the disease.

There’s also an array of food events taking place to raise awareness and raise money to support breast cancer awareness.

Here’s five ways the Dubai restaurant industry is helping to raise awareness for breast cancer.
