The Medical Humanism Fund (MHF) launched in 2013 by SHBPP, is dedicated to helping needy patients who present to the American University​​ of Beirut Medical Center (AUBMC) and who do not have the financial capabilities to cover their treatment. The first of its kind in the Arab world, the fund is a voluntary initiative from students, residents and attending physicians to their fellow human beings who need medical care. In addition to being pioneering in community services, this fund also helps enhance the spirit of Humanism and Professionalism at AUBMC-FM. Contributions are managed by the Social Services department at AUBMC to help patients in need of financial aid. The MHF committee, headed by now fourth-year medical student Mr. Taha Hatab, was able to raise more than 30 million Lebanese Pounds from donations and fundraising activities held in collaboration with Khelkhal.​Medical Humanism Fund Fundraiser.

The ḥara Sale (October 25, 2021)

In another joint effort between Khelkhal and the Medical Humanism Fund Committee, the ḥ​ara Sale (which is our term for garage sale) under the name “حارة الخير" was organized to collect money for the Medical Humanism Fund which has been one of the major sources for paying for treatment of patients who cannot afford it at AUBMC. Donated items were collected from donors from inside and outside AUB throughout the month of October, and these items were later sold in the garage sale held in front of the Saab Medical Library.

Running for Humane Medicine
Inspired by the SHBPP outreach activities at the International College, Ras​ Beirut, 9th grade student Mr. Anwar Agha decided to take the initiative to run at the 2018 Beirut International Marathon in support of humane medicine and SHBPP’s very own motto “Medicine is about Empathy, Caring, and Curing”! Mr. Anwar Agha’s wonderful initiative was successful in garnering $2,900, achieving the set fundraising target by 145%. The funds were channeled to SHBPP’s Medical Humanism Fund, which is dedicated to help needy patients who present at the American University of Beirut Medical Center (AUBMC) and who cannot afford to pay for their treatment. This fund is a voluntary fund from students, residents, attending physicians and others to their fellow human beings who need medical care.
