About

We’re so excited to be coming to the Eastern Province on the 24th of October 2014 and cannot wait to meet and greet you all in the family park at the Sunset Beach Resort.

Each and every one of you will make a difference! How? Here’s to how…

Many of us are aware that October is breast cancer awareness month. Breast Cancer has hit too close to home for many of us. The percentage of females who have been diagnosed with breast cancer in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has skyrocketed in the past few years. Therefore, The Empowerment Hub (TEH) is honored to join forces with Zahra Breast Cancer Association to shed light on the importance of staying physically active and adopting a healthy lifestyle. Research has shown that females who exercise on a regular basis and follow a healthy diet are less likely to be diagnosed with cancer.

Yalla banat...Don’t miss out on spending a day by the beach! A fun filled day with activities, food and beverage, and a ton of giving. We promise you a good night sleep by the end of the day for you’ll be up and about from 12:30 PM to 10 PM! Whether you choose to lounge on a sun bed, sip your chilled iced tea in the water, or work those muscles, we promise you never a dull moment! 3alba7ar will deliver!

Zahra Breast Cancer Association


The Zahra Breast Cancer Association was created by a group of educated women in the Saudi capital, Riyadh. These phenomenal women began their campaign by voluntarily visiting women in schools, universities, shopping malls and mosques thirteen years ago. They shed light on the importance of early detection and regular mammograms; the commonly used test to detect breast cancer tumors. The phenomenal female volunteers witnessed how thirsty the women they met were to learn more and teach others about breast cancer. That’s how Zahra Breast Cancer Association was born.


The name "Zahra" came from one of the founders. Dr. Suad Bin Amer's mother, Zahra Bint Ali (may God rest her soul), was diagnosed with breast cancer. In her honor, these phenomenal women fight and continue to fight Breast Cancer and we at The Empowerment Hub are blessed to take part in this fight.
