GOMBAK, 18 October 2019 – The humanitarian mission by Gabungan Pelajar Melayu Semenanjung (GPMS) in “Reaching Beyond Pakistan”, to assist the people of Damdama Village, Naran in Pakistan, is still faced with shortage of RM10K to finance their mission despite funds raised to support cost of the programme had reached RM20K.
Hence, GPMS is seeking help from the IIUM community to achieve the targeted amount of donation.
The one-week programme involving nine volunteers will be carried out from 26 October to 1 November this year.
The programme manager, Mohd Wafiyuddin Al-Awal bin Musa, explained that the main objective of the mission is to give moral support to Muslims in other countries and to show concerns for their wellbeing.
He added that it serves as a platform that encourages youths to become involved in volunteering programmes that are not only held in Malaysia but also worldwide.
Mohd Wafiyuddin has expressed his thoughts on the mission stating, “My hope for this programme is to open the eyes and hearts of Malaysians towards the problem faced by people in other countries as well as in Malaysia.”
All volunteers will leave for Pakistan on 25 October and are expected to return home on 4 November.
Donations can be made to:
Siti Aishah Abdul Rashid (Maybank)
