This unique recognition comes in line with Dr. Abdul Salam Al Madani’s unwavering commitment towards supporting humanitarian aid and relief efforts in the UAE and across the globe as well as his personal volunteering efforts in combating issues that threaten the good health of society such as ‘smoking’ and ‘drug abuse’. It is worth mentioning that Dr. Abdul Salam Al Madani heads the boards of a number of leading scientific and educational institutions from across the world through his core philosophy of human empowerment regardless of any discrimination based on color, race, religion and gender - a philosophy that he employs in his group of companies too. 

Meanwhile, Professor Fausto Gennuso, Director General of UCM, extended an official invitation to Dr. Abdul Salam Al Madani to attend a special ceremony which will be held at University’s headquarters in February, this year. The ceremony will be attended by a number of academics, senior officials representing UCM and prominent figures in the scientific and educational field.

He emphasized that he will continue to carry out humanitarian work at the individual and the community level and support the noble cause of humanity locally and internationally. 

It is worth mentioning that Dr. Abdul Salam Al Madani is the man behind 'DIHAD', the annual international Aid and Development conference and exhibition held in Dubai. DIHAD strives to serve humanity and uphold all human values transcending both regional and international borders and is committed to offer the best available resources to meet and confront the global humanitarian challenges by strengthening partnerships between international organizations and institutions dealing with relief aid and development. DIHAD also provides an international platform for decision-makers and specialists who come from all over the world to exchange humanitarian ideas, values and practices and help and assist those who are less fortunate.
