AMMAN – His Majesty King Abdullah II bin al-Hussein, accompanied by his Royal Highness Crown Prince al-Hussein bin Abdullah II, wished volunteers from all over Jordan a blessed Ramadan, and commended their efforts in aiding citizens. Amongst those volunteers, who established exceptional initiatives during the Coronavirus crisis, was one of Middle East University’s partners, the Jordanian Healing and Health Bank.
His Majesty expressed his pride in the volunteers’ achievements during this crisis, saying, “When I hear about the work you do, I rest assured that our Jordan is in safe hands.” He also added, “Meeting with you brings me hope and you have my complete support.” His Majesty’s meeting with the volunteers was attended by Mr. Ashraf al-Kailani, the Chairman of JOHHB’s Board of Directors.
His Majesty listened to the volunteers’ brief on the charitable and humanitarian work they carried out during the Coronavirus crisis. In his turn, Mr. al-Kailani stated, “JOHHB aims to achieve health security in Jordan. Our team outlined a work plan to deal with the Coronavirus crisis, and is determined to set a glowing image for Jordan.” He added, “JOHHB launched a number of successful campaigns, initiatives, and programmes during the Coronavirus crisis to reach out to Jordanians and meet their medical needs.”
MEU and JOHHB recently formed the “MEU Healing Partners” volunteer team, which consists of MEU students and faculty members. The initiative falls under the cooperative relations between the two sides to implement programmes and charitable services to aid the Jordanian society.
MEU and the Friends of the National Security, also directed by Mr. al-Kailani, share a memorandum of cooperation that stipulates the exchange of academic expertise, and the implementation of awareness programmes and projects. The two sides aim to promote community safety and security in Jordan. Therefore, a student club was formed at MEU, supervised by the FoNS and the University, in the hope to spread the concept of community safety and security amongst students.
Since its foundation, MEU was always keen on serving its community and producing socially-responsible graduates. Hence, it implements programmes and extracurricular activities, which are based on a modern educational system, to raise its students and local community members’ awareness of social responsibility by all possible means.
