PEKAN, 11 October 2021 – RIMAU Virtual Challenge 2021 organised by Yayasan UMP managed to raise funds amounting to RM28,036 for the development of Mawaddah Residential College in Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP) campus in Pekan.

Meanwhile, the Chief Executive of Yayasan UMP, Mohd Jamil Mohd Ja'afar said, the challenge this time allows participants to perform it through various forms of exercise whether walking, running or cycling.

“It is the best challenge in keeping the body healthy as well as donating.

“This initiative is also one of the charity projects or crowdfunding in an effort to help raise funds for the construction of the Mawaddah Residential College wakaf which will accommodate a total of 220 asnaf and poor students,” he said.

The charity run programme which ended on 30 September 2021 will be followed up with the Tok Gajah Virtual Challenge in an effort to help the community and underprivileged new students.

All of the proceeds from the donation will be channelled to those in need.
