UUM ONLINE: Warm affection and strong bonds were unmistakably evinced among UUM campus community and the local community as they come together in the Setulus Hati community service programme held at Kg. Darat Mosque, Changlun recently.
This programme was organised by Ghazali Shafie Graduate School of Government (GSGSG) UUM, in collaboration with UMW GRANTT, the School of International Studies (SOIS) and the International Business Management Society (IBMS).
Dr. Mohd Haniff Jedin, a UUM lecturer said that the programme offered the opportunity for UUM staff to assist the villagers as well as to share their concerns and compassion through the spirit of volunteerism.
"This programme helped to foster closer relationship with the local community as it provided exposure and direct experience for the staff and also students.
Meanwhile, a local resident, Mr. Ibrahim Arifin expressed his gratitude to the organisers of the programme for hosting activities such as the presentation of donations, meet-and-greet session with the village residents, cooking as well as dining with the members of the local community.
"I hope that this kind of programme with the local community will continue in the future and the pleasant relationship between the local community and UUM will be strengthened from time to time," he added.
