Social Solidarity Fund

His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed, President of the UAE, had said "Companies should promote the development of community and social solidarity among all members of the society". Therefore, evaluation of public and private companies depends not only on their profitability but also on their role in social solidarity. Social solidarity is shown by the company's ability to contribute to the process of the development of society and to achieve greater prosperity and well being for communities. Thus, it promotes national affiliation and loyalty among all segments of society. According to this leader's vision, RAKMHSU has established Social Solidarity Fund to support the education of meritorious students, develop university infrastructure facilities and promote applied research activities in all healthcare disciplines. The Fund has been established by RAK Ruler decision no 27 of 2013.

Goals of Social Solidarity Fund

The aim of fundraising is to strengthen university's financial ability to support programs and activities that contribute to the leading goal to be a world-class medical and health sciences university in teaching and research. In addition, the Fund aims to have a strategic partnership between the university and community. In particular, fundraising will achieve the following goals:

  • To provide financial immunity to the University against economic upheavals to ensure teaching and research which are the cornerstones of RAKMHSU's excellence and ability to seed the world with qualified professionals.
  • To facilitate education to talented and meritorious national and non-national students by offering them scholarship without being hampered by financial difficulties.

SOCIAL SOLIDARITY IS SHOWN BY COMPANY'S ABILITY TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE PROCESS OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF SOCIETY
