The Indian community honored Alungal Mohammed, chairman and managing director of Al-Abeer Group, by holding a big reception in Jeddah recently in appreciation of his contributions to the community’s welfare and progress.
The community leaders commended Mohammed for launching a major educational project, EduCity, with an estimated budget of INR 8 billion in Malappuram in the south Indian state of Kerala.
The reception was organized by Jeddah Keralite Forum (JKF) at the Indian Consulate premises. Pranav Ganesh, consul for consular affairs, presented a memento to Mohammed on behalf of JKF and the community.
KTA Muneer read out the text of memento and PP Raheem, general convener, welcomed the gathering. PT Mohammad, chairman of JKF, presided over the function. VK Raoof introduced Mohammed and highlighted his achievements, while Joycee Joseph gave a presentation on the EduCity project.
Mohammed thanked the Indian community for its support to make all his ventures a success. He said Al-Abeer launched the EduCity project as part of its corporate social responsibility.
EduCity offers integrated programs, new generation courses, research facilities and tie-ups with foreign universities. The facility caters both Indians living abroad and foreign students.
The project includes a super specialty hospital with herbal spa aimed at promoting medical tourism from the Middle East and other parts of the world.
Investors have been offered 50 percent of the project’s shares, while the rest is held by Al-Abeer Medical Academy and Research Center.
“EduCity offers educational facilities at world-class standard from KG to professional courses like medical, nursing, paramedical, engineering, and management courses,” Muneer said.
EduCity provides a certain percentage of its seats free of charge to eligible economically backward students, while its hospital offers free treatment to the needy people.
