EMU’s Support Towards Students Increasingly Continues

EMU’s Support Towards Students Increasingly Continues
Published Date: Sunday, 19 April 2020

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak that continues on a global scale, Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU) continues to work in every field without interruption in order to manage the crisis in a healthy, effective and efficient manner, and in this scope, the assistance provided to EMU students by the EMU Rectorate was announced with devotion and solidarity. This mobilization continues increasingly and the EMU Rectorate continues to work without reduction in speed. At the same time, while the Eastern Mediterranean University has provided food, cleaning and hygiene materials to students in need, both on and off the campus, the university has also provided free meals to students residing at EMU dormitories by making the Table d’Hote restaurant functional again, taking all the hygiene and health measures necessary in doing so..

The Capacity of the Table d’Hote Restaurant has been Increased

With a new decision taken by our Rectorate, the capacity of the Table d’Hote restaurant has been increased. In this context, the increase in capacity not only allows for the free meals distribution to be provided to the students residing at the EMU dormitories, but for other students in need residing in private dormitories also. Meals are served to students' doors in hygienic packages by EMU Dormitories. Based on the principle of "There is Abundance in EMU’s Kitchen, Have Salt Ready in Your Kitchen", business people, institutions and individual charitable people in the region and people and institutions from different parts of the island support our kitchen. This solidarity makes us stronger. The value of giving hands and being a family becomes more evident in these days.

Help Continues Increasingly

Due to the crisis EMU today tries to provide support to more than 6,000 students. For this reason the university utilises all of its resources in an
effective, efficient and sustainable manner. It is at this point the help given to our university is extremely valuable. From the day our support campaign began to this day, our help to our students have continually increased. We will become stronger if these contributions continue. In this context, we would like to thank all the benevolent institutions and individuals who have contributed to our university in particular. Initially, the Rectorate of our University prepared 2,700 aid packages for our students, and later a further 2,000, and for the free meals to be possible, all the necessary organisation was made in the kitchen. The volunteer group of EMU's academic and administrative staff and students strives to be more active every day. In addition, our graduates are in great cooperation with our university also.

Thank You to All involved in Salt in the Kitchen
