Promoting education in the UAE and in other countries remains a cause close to Sheikh Hamdan's heart. His compassion for human beings across the globe can be seen through his acts of philanthropy in Mexico, Australia, Africa, Ireland, Europe, Pakistan, India and many other countries. The Foundation has contributed to the establishment of medical and therapeutic centres in Palestine, Jordan, Afghanistan and other countries, supplying them with the necessary equipment to ensure their effective and continual functioning. The Al Razi Centre in Palestine was the first such centre to receive aid from the Foundation.
Moreover, the Foundation has donated AED 20 million in medical assistance within the context of a campaign to show solidarity with the Palestinian people. Likewise, the Al Amal Centre for the treatment of cancer in Jordan has received considerable financial support due to the preventive services aimed at early detection of cancer, treatment thereof, post-treatment care and continual observation of patients using the most up-to-date means for non-recurrence of the disease.
