Hamdard National Foundation, its Objectives and Functions

Hamdard spends close to 85% of its revenues in the pursuance of noble objectives, established by Late Hakeem Abdul Hameed Sahib. However, our activities in the organization are entirely secular and for the benefit of the nation as a whole.

The focus areas for Hamdard's CSR programs are Education, Environment apart from Health obviously. The choice of education as a theme flows from Hamdard being in the knowledge domain. Similarly, attention to the cause of health acknowledges that it is a vital precondition for promoting social good.

Our corporate sustainability touches millions of lives in the society. The approach to our business makes sure that the wealth we have created is continuously returned to the people through our community initiatives to all persons irrespective of caste, color or creed. Our initiative spans key areas such as education, health & medical relief and is provided to those in need, financial assistance/donation is afforded to widows, orphans, victims of unforeseen calamities and scholarships are granted to deserving students..

The Late Janab Hakeem Abdul Hameed was an eminent scholar of Unani Medicine, a dynamic visionary, renowned patron of modern education, a very humble social activist, a dedicated philanthropist and above all a great human being. He was consistently active throughout his life and did his best to create an awakening regarding health-care and education among depressed people belonging to the weaker section of the society. He was greatly inspired by the Indianised Islamic Concept of Charity and had an intense desire to work for development and progress of educationally backward communities and emancipation and empowerment of women. His initiatives to conserve, sustain and renew the environment, to encourage sustainable socio-economic development of the community and to improve the quality of life of the people is still practiced to date.

He also wanted to help the students belonging to underprivileged section of the society irrespective of their caste, color, creed or religion. It is with this objective in view that he created Hamdard National Foundation in 1962.He believed in the old adage: “True equality is the only true morality, true wisdom or true justice".

In pursuance of the purposes of the Hamdard National Foundation, Janab Hakeem Abdul Hameed Sahib during his lifetime had set up 25 Institutions in different fields of activities ranging from health care and medicine to education, Islamic Culture and Indian Civilization.

He also established Majeedia Hospital that provides the facility of medical treatment to the patients in both the Unani and Modern Medical System. In 1989 many of these Institutions were coalesced into “Jamia Hamdard” which was recognized as “Deemed to be a University” by the University Grant Commission. During the period of last 22 years of its existence, Jamia Hamdard contributed a lot to the field of education. Besides excelling in teaching and research in the areas of Unani Medicine, Pharmacy, Biosciences, Jamia Hamdard successfully developed the Faculties of Management Studies and Information Technology, Islamic Studies and Social Sciences, Allied Health Sciences and Nursing. In appreciation of the meritorious contributions made by Jamia Hamdard in the field of Professional and Technical Education and Scientific Research, Jamia Hamdard was regarded an Educational Institution of excellence and objectivity. The National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) an Autonomous Body set up by the University Grant Commission Accredited it in “A” Grade in 2003.
