UNIVERSITI Malaysia Kelantan (UMK) has successfully raised RM200,000 for its Special Covid-19 Fund to be used to help its students who are stranded in campus during the movement control order (MCO) period.
UMK vice-chancellor Prof Datuk Dr Noor Azizi Ismail told Bernama that part of the fund would also be utilised to buy necessities to produce personal protective equipment to be distributed to frontliners working in health facilities in the state.
At the same time, Prof Noor Azizi urged the stranded UMK students to remain in their respective campuses following the extension of the MCO.
“Please be patient and comply with the Health Ministry’s directives to remain on campus, ” he said at the UMK campus in Kota Baru recently.
“We also advise the parents not to worry about their children’s well-being.
“I can assure them that the university has taken all the necessary measures to ensure that students in residential colleges and outside the campus are well-taken care of, ” added Prof Noor Azizi.
For the record, a total of 900 UMK students have been staying on campus since the implemen- tation of the MCO on March 18. — Bernama
