FORTY-one students from Management & Science University (MSU) participated in a community service project at Pusat Jagaan OKU Nur in Taman Tasik Titiwangsa, Kuala Lumpur, recently. The centre takes care of senior citizens and people with mental illness.
Aptly called MSU UCommunity: Wellness “Greatest Love of All” programme, it was organised by the Student & Career Development Department as part of MSU’s U-Community: From University to Community project, which focuses on five main areas – orphans, orang asli, urban poor, the environment and wellness.
Programme director Hasanah Amirah Rosli, a second-year student in Bachelor’s in Nutrition, said the visit had a profound impact on her on the plight of the handicapped and the elderly.
“The event is one of the many ways the students see for them- selves the challenges the less fortunate face.
“Such voluntary activities build our self-confidence and soft skills to face up to future challenges. There are many disadvantaged people in our midst and we can do our bit to help them,” she said.
The programme was one of the main activities organised by MSU towards developing personal skills. These value-added community programmes are aimed at exposing students to communitybased activities and enhancing the social responsibilities of MSU as an institution that cares.
