Praising the Pink Caravan’s efforts in her keynote speech, H.H. Sheikha Jawaher bint Mohammed Al Qasimi, Founder and Royal Patron of the ‘Friends of Cancer Patients’ (FoCP), International Ambassador of the World Cancer Declaration for Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) and International Ambassador for Childhood Cancer for UICC, noted how they have transcended their traditional role of raising awareness to become a global example of humanitarian action, where individuals and organisations have united to ensure the safety, health and well-being of the entire UAE community.
"As we are travelling the ride of giving and goodness, we recall the efforts of the late Ameera BinKaram, one of the key founders of the Pink Caravan, who directed the ride of love and giving with her humanitarian spirit, to raise awareness and give hope and ignite courage. Ameera supported the PCR since its inception, and she initiated preparations for the current edition of the ride, writing her final chapter with more love and giving," Sheikha Jawaher noted.
"To memorialise her tireless efforts, we launched the ‘Ameera Fund’ in October, whose proceeds will be used to treat cancer patients. I urge everyone – private companies, banks, businesspersons and charity organisations to support the Ameera Fund, and help cancer patients," she added.
She extended her profound thanks to the Ruler of Sharjah for his patronage of the PCR over the years. Sheikha Jawaher also thanked all sponsors, the organising committee, the jockeys, the medical team, and volunteers who work tirelessly to ensure the success of PCR.
