SUNGAI PETANI: The Kampung Raja MIC Youth branch, which has initiated a fund-raising drive for the Malaysian International Peace Fund, has so far raised RM20,000. 

State MIC chief Datuk V. Saravanan, who launched the campaign on Wednesday, commended the youth wing for its efforts. 

“We hope other branches in the state will emulate the youth wing to help relieve the sufferings of the war victims,” he said. 

In Alor Star, Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM) staff have raised about RM5,000 for the fund. 

Vice-chancellor Prof Datuk Dr Ahmad Fawzi Basri hoped the contributions, to be channelled to the Education Ministry, would help ease the sufferings of the Iraqis. 

UUM public relations assistant director Suraya Deraman said another collection would be held after the registration of new students in June.
