This year AMWHO (AinShams Model World Health Organisation) decided to take a step further with one of the most important, sensitive and neglected health issues in our society, mental health. We believe that mental health is as important as physical health so we're teaming up with Cyclers to go on a cycle-for-cause.
This year's campaign slogan is "Behind the smoke screen" to raise awareness about Depression and Anxiety Disorders from which a huge number of people suffer in silence.
