A group of Arabic & Emirati Studies (AES) students at the HCT-Sharjah Women’s College (SWC) conducted a campus-wide fundraising activity on June 23 to support the Reading Nation Ramadan campaign.
The humanitarian campaign, was launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, on the first day of the holy month of Ramadan, and aims to provide five million books to underprivileged children in refugee camps and around the world in addition to establishing 2,000 libraries in schools globally.
SWC students happily seized the moment to help and felt thankful that they were able to join such drive for the benefits of others. SWC faculty and staff were also more than happy to donate for the noble cause.
The fundraiser was held under the supervision of Dr. Najeya Alkharji, Arabic faculty.
