PETALING JAYA: Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai (pic) reassures Malaysians who had donated to Tunku Abdul Rahman University College (TAR UC) that the funds will be used effectively, especially in subsidising deserving students whose families have been affected by the current economic and financial circumstances.
In a Facebook post Sunday (May 31), the TAR UC Board of Governors chairman also thanked those who stood by the varsity when it faced “massive funding cuts under the Pakatan Harapan government”.
More than RM2mil was raised through the MCA-led fundraising campaign to help TAR UC after its funding was cut.
“The whole nation witnessed hawkers, meat sellers, traders, organisations and many others sincerely contributing their hard-earned earnings to this institution as they saw that TAR UC has been genuinely providing quality and affordable education for many Malaysians, especially those from lower income groups who would have otherwise not been able to pursue their tertiary education.
“They are the unsung heroes and we are very thankful to them.
“On behalf of TAR UC, I would like to place on record our deep appreciation for the wonderful gesture from the Malaysian public and to MCA for mobilising its nationwide resources to assist the fund-raising exercise since October last year, ” he said in his post.
The TARC Education Foundation Board also said TAR UC will continue providing quality and affordable education and will continue to welcome contributions and support from the public.
Education is a long-term sustenance for the nation’s growth and development, it added.
“For TAR UC to continue its mission and vision in developing human capital for the country, we need public support along the way, ” it said, adding that it will go a long way towards providing quality and affordable education for future generations.
