Humanitarian organization and one of MUT partners, Iqraa Trust, has once again come to the University’s aid. This time around, the organization is contributing to efforts by the University to protect staff and students from being infected with COVID-19.

On 13 August 2020, Iqraa Trust donated 100 masks to MUT. Explaining the reasons for donating the masks to the University, Dr Mahmoud Youssef Baker, Chair of Iqraa Trust (Durban) and one of the founders of the organisation, said they decided to provide communities in the townships with personal protection equipment in an attempt to contain the spread of the virus. ““We have a relationship with MUT. It is a historically disadvantaged University and this is a call to action to the NPO sector to uplift MUT” said Dr Baker. Dr Baker said they were aware of how communities in the township have been affected by the virus.
