HELP students are proud to take part in the HELP The Nation Project
HELP University, in collaboration with the Malaysian National News Agency (BERNAMA), Thursday launched the ‘Help the Nation’ programme, a flood-relief campaign to help those affected by the recent floods in the country. The initiative was launched by HELP University President Datuk Dr Paul Chan together with BERNAMA general manager Datuk Zulkefli Salleh at the university’s main campus in Bukit Damansara in Kuala Lumpur.
Chan, when met after the event, said the aim of the programme was to facilitate efforts in providing aid to underprivileged, disabled or poverty-stricken individuals who were affected by the disaster. He said the programme was a proactive effort to inculcate the values of character formation, especially in terms of humanitarian leadership among students of the university by helping those in need.
Chan noted that the university had to date contributed RM100,000 to the programme, the sum collected when the recent floods were seen to be worsening.
The university president expressed optimism that the collaboration would result in more funds being raised and upcoming fund-raising activities garnering wider coverage in the future. He added that all funds would be handed over to the Education Ministry to be channelled to the affected parties.
