i-PUTRA with Community – Flood Volunteer Mission (2nd January 2022)
i-PUTRA continues its flood volunteering goal with foreign students beginning in early 2022.Three responsibility centers, together with two non-profit organisations (NGOs), agreed to help flood victims in Bentong. PUTRA International Center, Co-Curriculum and Student Development Centre, and Student Affairs Division have collaborated with Sahabat Infaq Malaysia and Khabar Bentong and have agreed to provide flood mission assistance in several areas of Bentong.
At the beginning of the new year on January 2, 2022, a total of 107 volunteers from Universiti Putra Malaysia assisted in the clean-up operation at Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Bentong and Sekolah Kebangsaan Tuanku Fatimah. In this mission, 24 international students, along with 57 local students and 26 UPM staff, have assisted the school in cleaning activities. This mission has provided experience and exposure to international and local students, especially in the aspect of providing voluntary assistance.
The NGO has assisted in donating food as well as donating items such as Al-Quran donations from Nasyrul Quran Putrajaya, water, clothes, blankets, cat food and others. i-PUTRA is also not left behind by distributing donations in the surrounding areas, such as pillows and mattresses.
The entire distribution location of donations other than schools is in Taman Chegar Medang, Surau Kampung Benus, Masjid Kampung Bukit Piatus, and Kampung Teroh, Karak.
