Street Burger celebrates successful launch and implementation of “ForHer” campaign for breast cancer awareness

As part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Street Burger -home of Sri Lanka’s original
gourmet burger-, launched its inaugural annual “ForHer” initiative, in collaboration with
the Indira Cancer Trust and Suwara Arana -the first paediatric palliative care centre in
Sri Lanka. The campaign kicked off on the 1 st of October, and for the entire month the
restaurant chain committed to donating a portion of every order placed at its outlets
towards breast cancer research, medication, and support.
The ForHer campaign was initiated with the intention to not just raise funds, but also
increase awareness on breast cancer – the most common type of cancer among
females in Sri Lanka-, with the aim to also create a real and tangible impact on how we
can steer conversations on the disease to the focus. Throughout the month of October
and at all of its outlets –Bambalapitiya, Ethul Kottte, and Mt.Lavinia-, employees wore
the iconic pink ribbon as part of their uniform, and all Street Burger customers were
given the opportunity to participate and support this health campaign just by purchasing
a meal.
“The statistics on breast cancer in Sri Lanka are alarming,” said Mafas Saheer,
Operations Manager of Street Burger. “The launch of our ForHer campaign was our way
of honouring the women in our communities, and doing our part to provide as much
support as we can by raising both awareness and funds for the cause.”
Although launched to coincide with “Pink Ribbon Month”, Street Burger hopes to keep
the campaign going well beyond October, with more initiatives to educate and engage
its customers and the public for the benefit of all women in Sri Lanka.
Born from humble beginnings from a food truck on Marine Drive, but bolstered by a
passion for innovation and love for burgers, Street Burger has now cemented for itself a
reputation as the pioneers of gourmet burger culture in Sri Lanka. Street Burger sources
the freshest premium-quality ingredients for the preparation of its intensely flavoursome
and wide range of signature hand-crafted burgers, fries, and shakes – all made in-
house; contributing to the ultimate gourmet burger experience. The brand now operates
from three dine-in outlets across Colombo: Bambalapitiya, Ethul Kotte, and Mt.Lavinia.
