The students of Eastern Mediterranean, voluntarily made an automated water-feeding station for stray animals.
According to the information released by the University, EMU Engineering Faculty, Industrial Engineering Department students Adel Omar Abdülkhaliq and Abdel-Rahman Ali Taha worked on this project of the Community Involvement Center.
The students stated that as a result of the course which contributed to their social responsibility awareness level, they are proud to be putting their names to a project that can be implemented. The students also expressed their happiness for completing the project for EMU, which boasts an animal-friendly campus. Having completed the project within a period of ten days, the students stated that they aim to provide stray animals with food and water in an uninterrupted fashion.
Saying that they have taken the first step with the development of a feeding-water station, Abdülkhaliq and Ali Taha said “We have to help the stray animals. Living on the streets contains separate difficulties both in winter and summer. We have taken the first step. Now it’s your turn. We want our project to contribute to the whole city. In this respect, we hope that the municipalities or the government take responsibility and support the automated feeding-water stations.”
The biggest support for the project was put forward by EMU Rector Prof. Dr. Necdet Osam, Communication Faculty, Public Relations and Advertising Department Chair Assoc. Prof. Dr. Anıl Kemal Kaya, Vice Department Chair Assist. Prof. Dr. Umut Ayman and Foreign Languages and English Preparatory School academic staff member Fayka Güresun. In this respect, the Feeding-Water Station will soon be activated in front of the Registrar’s Office Building.
