Also known as LoFest ’18, this 11-day fundraising festival will be held from 11 until 21 October parading the concept of colours. It is initiated by a team of (AKHI Club) members under IIUM’s University Centre for Community Engagement (UCCE-BUDI).
According to the President of AKHI Club, Muhammad Amar Yusuf bin Zulkifli, the festival is organised with the objectives to generate income for AKHI Club, to increase health awareness among the community, and to strengthen networking between AKHI Club and other clubs under BUDI and the external agencies.
LOFEST ’18 offers programmes like Skye Bazaar, Avicenna Race, and LOFEST run.
The Skye Bazaar is focused to raise funds for the club for the purpose of supporting incoming projects financially, and IIUM students are given the opportunity to own their stall to sell their products.
