Note: all of these activities can be enjoyed in your house and garden and with your family/house sharers. KAUST recreational facilities are not open during Eid week.

18 KAUST Maskateers have been busy with their sewing machines over the past few weeks and have already passed the 1000 mark of masks made for our community! Thanks to all of them.. and special thanks to Rabab Wereda for not only being a mask-making machine herself, but also co-ordinating the materials needed to keep our Maskateers stocked and busy... have a look at some photos of them in action...
Donating to charities during this Ramadan has been a little different. In past years, KAUST has given Zakat Al-Fitr and other charitable donations to our neighbors in Thuwal. This year, in order that you can still donate to charity, Government Affairs have arranged some alternatives:
- Donate Zakat Al-Fitr to the 'Thuwal Charitable Society' through their bank account.
To get more details for donating, visit The Lens and don't forget - if you are visiting HSC to make your donation, to follow all social distancing regulations, wear a face mask and carry hand sanitizer.
