Jacobs University Graduate, Hashem Al-Ghaili, Donates 50,000 € To His University

Just a few years after completing his studies, the Yemeni social media star and science communicator Hashem Al-Ghaili donated 50,000 euros to Jacobs University. This is the largest single person donation from a Jacobs Alumnus in the history of Jacobs University. After the huge success of his Facebook page, which has nearly 27 million followers, Hashem decided to give back to those who believed in him. The funds will go to the research group of his patron, Prof. Dr. Sebastian Springer, who plans to use it for the purchase of research equipment that will help advance cancer research.
