Dhiraagu and the Maldives Cancer Society have launched a campaign to increase awareness about childhood cancer.
The awareness campaign includes information on the impact of cancer on children as well as how to recognize cancer symptoms in youngsters.
Furthermore, the mental health impacts of cancer on children will be discussed, as well as ways to reintegrate them into society and return them to school after beating cancer.
Dhiraagu plans to release a video series this year as part of its attempt to increase awareness about pediatric cancer. In addition, the telecom company intends to launch an art show geared towards schools.
According to a recent report by the International Agency for Research on Cancer, childhood cancer has grown dramatically to the point of a public health catastrophe.
