Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates – 21 August 2021: Under the directives of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nayhan, Ruler’s Representative in Al Dhafra Region and President of the University’s Board of Trustees, Abu Dhabi University (ADU) continues its humanitarian aid and social responsibility efforts which have established a culture of voluntarism among its students, faculty and staff members. 

ADU has invested in building strong relationships with the community through the provision of high-quality education, workshops, seminars, scholarships and financial aid programs which ensure students’ access to an education regardless of their financial situation. 

The university’s efforts include a selection of scientific research, cultural and voluntary initiatives that aim to promote a culture of humanitarian work and social responsibility and establish the values of inclusion and generosity.  

One of the initiatives launched by ADU and in collaboration with Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) and Lulu Group International is a donation drive, in support of its Iqra’a campaign, that aims to support 300 eligible students to pursue their academic career at ADU. They also launched an initiative titled ‘For Sudan’ that aims to collect both monetary and in-kind donations which will be sent to Sudanese families.

Since its launch, the initiative raised more than AED 68 million and extended financial aid to 3,130 students. 

Ihsan Club, is another initiative launched by ADU that features several community initiatives and awareness campaigns, including those aimed at promoting, protecting and preserving the environment.
