The Big Pink Fight took place from 3-8 February 2020 and gave Nigerian women the opportunity to undergo clinical breast exams, ultrasound scans and mammograms. Four of the six screening stations were located at Shoprite supermarkets including Shoprite Asaba Mall (Delta State), Shoprite Onitsha Mall (Anambra State), Shoprite Novare Gateway Mall (Abuja) and Shoprite Ado Bayero Mall (Kano State).

“As a result of Shoprite’s partnership with RFCA, which dates back to 2014, more than 8 000 women have now undergone screenings,” says Shoprite Nigeria’s Kunle Abiola. “We’re thrilled about the great turnout this year and plan to roll this initiative out to more communities where we trade.”
