Medi foundation student society aid initiative for students

Given the recent crisis and economic instability brought about by the recent pandemic. Medi Foundation Student Society plans to launch its Aid initiative to help struggling students in the TRNC. We plan on reaching out to relevant authorities, companies and place of work that are listed below to help us raise the necessary Aid to help students in TRNC.

We believe that it’s the social responsibility and an appeal to Humanity to help people during the toughest times in life, because that is what makes us human. The detailed approach of this initiative will be seen below as we outline our plan and overview to help us carry out this project effectively and efficiently. Einstein Once said “The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing”.

So, we at Medi Foundation Student society calls on all necessary parties to find their humanity in assisting us reach those who needs help the most.
