Department of Physics and Department of Information and Communications Technology, CFS IIUM has successfully conducted an event, Free Market: Back to School Programme in collaboration with Hal Ehwal Wanita (HELWA) Surau As- Sobirin, Taman Gambang Damai. The programme which is led by lecturer from the academic departments, Sr Harlina Damiri and Sr Rohayah Ruslan was held on 9th January 2021 at Surau As-Sobirin Taman Gambang Damai. It was participated by around 59 families.The programme was also attended by Tuan Haji Murshid Kassim, CFS Dean and Deputy Dean Tuan Haji Izdihar Ishak and started at 9 am in the morning. The main objective of the programme is to provide free school supplies and material for kids going back to school.

Among other benefits gained from the programme are the CFS staff are able to provide to the community and at the same time strengthening ties with Taman Gambang Damai residents as most of the contributions collected are from CFS staff, Taman Gambang Damai residents and the surau managements. Furthermore, the CFS staff and Taman Gambang Damai communities have successfully embarked on “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle” of goods and materials.

Overall, despite facing unexpected challenges, it was a huge success in terms of organising a decent beneficial and meaningful programme for the local community and specifically for our IIUM staff.
