Community Service project at Rumah Seri Kenangan (RSK)
01 OCTOBER 2017

On the 1st of October 2017, 5 students of Kolej MDIS Malaysia visited and carried out their Community Service project at Rumah Seri Kenangan (RSK), an old folks’ home in Kampung Ungku Mohsin, Johor Bahru, Johor. They were accompanied by their course lecturer, Ms. Salmalina Salleh and the Programme Coordinator of MPU Course, Ms. Anisha Sashidharan. 

The students were involved in a social event held at RSKcalled “Pasar Doposen”, whereby donated items were sold for 20 cents each in which the total earnings will proceed back to the house. Alongside the students, the event was also joined by many organisations in Johor in cluding the Rumah Perlindungan Kanak-kanak Johor. The project was initiated and run as a part of their group coursework.  Prior to the event, the students held a week of donation booth to raise funds for items to be donated such as bath towels, soft drinks, and crackers.

 The main objective of this project and visit is to have the students engaged in a social event whereby they can contribute while engaging with a community in need. During this day, the students also spent time conversing and ushering the elderly to and fro their dormitory and the event hall.
