AUC Community Service Leaders Visit Cancer Hospital in Luxor
On Saturday October 26th, 8 leaders of the community service clubs, accompanied by their advisor, went on a one day trip to Shefaa’ Al-Orman Cancer Hospital in Luxor. The trip was organized by Al-Orman Organization. The aim of the trip was to give exposure to the students on the process of charity. The students were able to see how community service takes place outside of campus and how hard work and cooperation can result in an impactful result in serving the less fortunate in Egypt. The hospital has advanced technology in dealing with cancer, as well as a high level of hygiene and sanitation. Additionally, the students were able to witness the effects of severe poverty in certain areas in Upper Egypt and felt inspired to expand the scope of their work. In the light of this, one of the community service clubs is planning to lead a donations campaign to the hospital and to have the name of AUC engraved on the “ Wall of Recovery” in the hospital.
