Ruler of Sharjah donates $2 million for Cairo University building repairs
HH Dr Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, has donated US$2 million for restoration work on a Cairo University faculty building.
Installation of much-needed equipment at the building of the university's Faculty of Engineering is now set to begin. The building was severely damaged by a fire during the dispersion of the sit-in in Al Nahda Square.
This is one in a series of initiatives taken by Sheikh Sultan in support of Egypt and its people during the current crisis.
Sheikh Sultan also gave orders for building mosques in the villages in North Sinai town of Rafah. Each of the said mosques will be named after one of the 25 Egyptian soldiers who were killed in a terrorist attack on Monday morning.
The Ruler of Sharjah also gave directives for building modern houses for the residents of eighteen slums in Giza City. Upon completion, the ownership of the new houses will be transferred to the residents of the run-down areas.
