Cold comfort: Prof Khong (centre) leads the pack in KDU’s latest charitable endeavour.

KDU University College (KDU UC) saw its students from the School of Hospitality, Tourism and Culinary Arts, organise the Ice Bucket Challenge to extend its efforts in helping the less fortunate.

Inspired by the popular fund-raising method which went viral around the globe this year, the students organised the initiative to raise funds so that the orphans at Rumah Amal Suci Rohani could enjoy a fun and educational trip to Legoland and Waterworld.

First to take the “plunge” were KDU UC vice-chancellor Prof Dr Khong Yoon Loong, deputy vice chancellor Assoc Prof Dr Hon Wei Min, and School of Hospitality Tourism and Culinary Arts senior lecturer Datin Puteri Juliana Abdul Aziz, as well as other lecturers, students of KDU UC and representatives from Rumah Amal Suci Rohani.

Aside from the Ice Bucket Challenge, the students also organised a food carnival, offering a wide selection of food, so that the wider campus community could get involved in raising money for the orphans’ outing.
