Humanitarian Welfare is a practical component of social responsibility that requires group or collective involvement of university students in activities in and outside the campus and community. To encourage the students, the Centre for Core Knowledge at Seri Begawan Religious Teachers University College, KUPU SB has inaugurated a Foreign Humanitarian Welfare Programme for Institutes of Higher Learning. On 31st December 2018 night, 16 KUPU SB students left for Lombok Island in Indonesia to participate in the first programme which will be held until the 8th of this month.
Sending off the delegation was Dr. Haji Adanan bin Haji Basar, the Ra’es of KUPU SB. The programme is to encourage students of institutes of higher learning to enhance awareness and caring among the community, particularly the students, on their social responsibility to help the less fortunate. During the campaign their focus is the people of Lombok. In an interview with RTB, Doctor Haji Noralizam bin Haji Aliakhbar, Director of the Centre For Core Knowledge as the Head of Delegation, explained the programme is intended to expose the students and other members of KUPU SB to conduct community service projects for the harmony of the country. He said they are donating food to more than 300 villagers on the island and helping to clean up the disaster struck areas. The aid were donated by the members of the university college and members of the public. Lombok was struck by major earthquakes in July and August last year.
