It was a knowledgeable buka puasa event for children who were given some insight of consumer rights organised by Quest International University (QIU) held at AEON Mall Klebang here recently.

Apart from spreading the spirit of community and shared blessings, the children from Yayasan Amanah An-Nur Maisarah were given quiz questions on consumerism.

Head of Consumer Empowerment, and Administrative and Finance section of the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Perak, V. Poovendran conducted the quiz competition and also explained the rights of a consumer. 

The Iftar was led by the QIU’s Student Life Division and Gerakan Pengguna Siswa Club to host 70 children and 12 staff from the Yayasan. 

QIU was delighted to join hands with RYTHM Foundation,  the ministry and management of the mall to organise the event. 

The Ramadan Iftar is one of many diverse initiatives spearheaded by the university to support, empower and create a positive legacy in the local community. 

QIU Vice-Chancellor Professor Zita Mohd Fahmi who was present said the university’s founder Datuk Seri Dr Vijay Eswaran has always envisioned a university that gives back to the community especially in the place we call home. 

“Events like this help teach our students the importance of reaching out and building connections, so we can help our fellow man,” she added. 

The children also received duit raya and goodies.
