AHIBS DISTRIBUTED FOOD PACKS TO 140 STUDENTS QUARANTINE AT STUDENT COLLEGES DURING MCO
The Covid-19 epidemic forced Malaysians to stay at home for two weeks at the beginning and another extended two weeks starting 17 March 2020. University students were given options to stay at hostel or go back to their homes. As restaurants and cafes were asked to close during this period, Malaysian government provides food for breakfast, lunch and dinner to help the students coping with the situation. AHIBS has taken a proactive action in giving a hand to help students staying in campus during MCO. On 26 March 2020 and 1 April 2020, AHIBS Covid 19 Welfare Taskforce including lecturers, administration and support staff and Management of Technology students distributed 140 packs of basic food to 100 undergraduate and 40 postgraduate students staying in campus.
Before the lockdown, Free Food Team of AHIBS gave RM150 to the needy students staying in UTM. The donations from AHIBS JB endowment fund were handed by Dr. Noriza Jamal, the Deputy Dean of Academic AHIBS JB on 16th March 2020. The financial aids could help students who are affected by the lockdown, due to loss of part time jobs when UTM go for full lockdown.
