A group of volunteers from Sahabat Sukarelawan MMU Cyberjaya extended their helping hand to rescue and clean the houses of those who were affected in flood-hit areas including Salak Tinggi, Bukit Changgang, Dengkil, Puchong, and Shah Alam. On 24th December 2021, the cleaning activities in Klang and Banting were also joined by Prof. Dato’ Dr. Mazliham Mohd Su’ud, the President of MMU; Prof. Ir Dr. Hairul Azhar Abdul Rashid, the Vice President of Research, Industrial Collaborations and Engagement (VP RICE), and Prof. Dr. Mohammad Yusoff Alias from the Faculty of Engineering (FOE) together with the volunteers.
Meanwhile, the Sahabat Sukarelawan MMU Melaka also lent their helping hand to the flood victims in Lubok Cina, Melaka, and Jelebu, Negeri Sembilan. The volunteers from both campuses were first to offer immediate necessities to the flood victim with the assistance of villager’s handmade raft and the Malaysian army. With the same spirit to contribute to the society, a total of 53 volunteers including staff, students, alumnus, and representatives from a non-governmental organization (NGO) embarked in the “Misi MMU Prihatin MENTAKAB” helped clean up houses of flood victims in Taman Mentakab Indah as well as some areas at Kolej Vokasional Puteri and Sekolah Menengah Jenis Kebangsaan (SMKJK) Hwa Lian on 31 December 2021. They also distributed some basic household items such as comforters, pillows, toiletries, and dry foods.
Thank you to all volunteers for contributing your effort as well as inspiring our community to come and help people in times of need.
