KUALA LUMPUR, 2 April 2023 - A total of 50 UMP Kilau volunteers in Yayasan UMP Squad and Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP) alumni joined Projek Secangkir Budi as one of the initiatives to help underprivileged people around Kuala Lumpur.

“Through Mama’s exciting stories, volunteers can learn more about the lives of special needs children, orphans and underprivileged children she has supported for 22 years.

“In addition, Yayasan UMP Squad and alumni had the opportunity to break their fast with 38 Pertubuhan Rahoma Darul Fakir Miskin residents in Kampung Datuk Keramat.

“Even though the time spent was short, the memories through various activities with the children will be remembered,” she said.

Azmira added that although the volunteers were exhausted, they managed to establish relationships with orphans and asnaf and remained energetic in their efforts to help those in need.

Projek Secangkir Budi also provided 50 packs of food aid kits and preloved items such as clothing, toys and personal necessities to the less fortunate around Lorong Haji Taib, Kuala Lumpur.
