Male employees shaved off their beards as part of the month-long campaign
DP World Limassol, in collaboration with P&O Maritime Cyprus, held a “shave-down” event at the Company’s premises at Limassol port on Thursday, 17 November 2022, to mark Movember Cyprus and Men’s Health Awareness Month. Movember Cyprus aims to raise awareness as well as encourage men all over the island to get tested and seek mental health support.
The Man Van, the roving barbershop of Movember Cyprus, complete with a professional barber, visited the Company’s premises to offer employees a shave on the spot. Many DP World Limassol employees embraced the event by shaving off their beards, while they purchased merchandize and other items to support the campaign.
In statements as part of the event, DP World Limassol’s Human Resource Manager Mrs. Marina Christofi pointed out: “At DP World Limassol, our employees’ health and wellbeing is our number one priority. Through this event, we want to contribute to the movement’s efforts to raise awareness about men’s health, suicide prevention and prostate and testicular cancer, and foster an environment that motivates men to take action when it comes to their health and wellbeing.”
“We believe that early prevention and intervention is essential in order to reduce the number of men that are dying prematurely every year. As such we have been active supporters of Movember Cyprus for the last couple of years, making a significant contribution to the movement”, Mrs. Christofi added.
