SHAH ALAM – Some 200 volunteers including a medical team from the Unversiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) Alumni Association and UiTM staff headed for Chenor, Pahang this morning on a mission to clean the mosque and school and distribute necessity goods to victims of the recent floods in the district.
Association president Datuk Zaini Hassan said besides the cleaning work and distributing essential goods to the affected residents, they would also provide hair cutting services and health check-ups, including dental examination free of charge.
“Tengku Muda Pahang Tengku Abdul Rahman Sultan Ahmad Shah will also come down to join our mission,” Zaini, who is also Assistant Editor-in-Chief of Utusan Malaysia, told reporters at the UiTM Parade Ground, here Saturday.
The convoy, comprising four buses, three lorries, 20 four-wheel-drive vehicles and 10 superbikes, was sent off by UiTM Vice-Chancellor Tan Sri Prof Dr Sahol Hamid Abu Bakar.
Meanwhile, Sahol said the mission, which was the first organised by the UiTM alumni association, showed the concern of the UiTM students and staff as well as its alumni for the wellbeing of the victims of the flood which was described as among the worst in the country. – BERNAMA
