posted on 21/01/2010: 673 views


The American University in Dubai is carrying out a series of fund raising activities to support relief efforts for the victims of the earthquake that struck Haiti on January 12.

The AUD's International Aid Society (AIA) has collaborated with the various departments and clubs at the university to raise money that will be handed over to the Clinton Foundation and the Hôpital Albert Schweitzer Haiti.

The amount will be distributed in the country that is facing massive damage and loss of life. Estimates on the number of deceased have ranged from 50,000 to nearly 500,000.

Over 100,000 people are missing and unaccounted for. Estimates of the displaced are at more than 2 million people.

Red and blue ribbons will be sold for Dh5 and students will be selling baked goodies to bring the student body together for the fund raising effort.

The ‘Dhiram Wars', an annual event at the university will help raise the amount through a student competition, where each department and schools of the university has to come up the most amount of money in coins.

Collections points are set up in many areas of the campus while the university has also created Facebook accounts for people to show their solidarity with the Haitian people.

The foundations can be visited at: http://www.clintonfoundation.org/haitiearthquakel and http://www.hashaiti.org/. – Khaleej Times
