Bahrain World Trade Center Lights Up In Purple For GCC Cancer Awareness Week

31 Jan, 2016

The Kingdom’s iconic landmark building, Bahrain World Trade Center (BWTC), which holds MODA MALL on the ground floor, is participating in the first GCC Cancer Awareness Week by lighting the towers’ exterior in purple until February 7th.


The initiative is in line with last year’s joint efforts with the Bahrain Cancer Society (BCS) to commemorate World Cancer Day. This year, the BWTC has extended its support by collaborating with the BSC, Gulf Federation for Cancer Control (GFCC) and Gulf Centre for Cancer and Prevention (GCCCP) and be part of a regional public awareness campaign that highlights the importance of taking a proactive approach on the fight against cancer.

In addition, MODA MALL is partaking in this initiative by displaying cancer awareness posters around the mall to emphasize the importance of prevention, early detection and self-examination.

World Cancer Day is an annual global event that takes place on February 4th to unite the world population in the fight against cancer. With cancer being one of the leading causes of death in the Kingdom, Bahrain World Trade Center (BWTC) and MODA MALL’s participation in the GCC aims to educate the local public about the disease and encourage individuals across the Kingdom to take proper action.

Bahrain World Trade Center (BWTC), the Kingdom's iconic landmark and a testament to sustainable architectural design, has announced today that for the fifth consecutive year the state-of-the-art BWTC joined the rest of the world to mark the 'Earth Hour' Campaign, a global environmental initiative in partnership with World Wildlife Fund's (WWF).

As part of the campaign, the BWTC along with other significant landmark buildings and sites, public and private facilities around the Kingdom switched off all the external lighting for one hour from 8:30pm to 9:30pm local time on Saturday, 23rd March 2013 to endorse its commitment to protecting the environment. Some of the participating buildings included: Al Fateh Grand Mosque, Isa Cultural Centre, Electricity and Water Authority, Bahrain International Circuit and the Al Moayyed Tower to name a few.

The BWTC is the world's first development to incorporate wind turbines, the use of which eliminates around 55,000 cubic kgC of carbon emissions from the development every year. Earth Hour is aligned with the objective of promoting Bahrain's efforts in sustainability to local, regional and international audiences. The structure of BWTC itself is a testament to its underlying commitment to the environment and sustainability.

This year a comprehensive list of the world's great man-made marvels and natural wonders, which included the Eiffel Tower, Brandenburg Gate, Hiroshima Peace Memorial, Empire State Building, London Eye, Table Mountain, Christ the Redeemer statue, Sydney Opera House and the world's tallest building, Burj Khalifa, plunged into darkness for Earth Hour contributing to a historic moment in the climate landscape.
