The Ministry of Education’s (MoE) Department of Administration and Services organised a charity event to raise money for the Turkiye and Syria Earthquake Humanitarian Fund yesterday.
Permanent Secretary (Higher Education) at the MoE Dr Haji Azman bin Ahmad was the guest of honour at the event held outside the ministry’s Old Building.
The donations will help to ease the burden of victims affected by a series of earthquakes that struck the region in January.
The event began with a warm-up session, followed by a 2.2-kilometre walkathon.
Other activities included garage and car boot sales.
Rental for the garage and car boot sales; revenue from walkathon t-shirt sales; and money collected from donations will go to the humanitarian fund.
Leaders from higher institutions of learning, MoE officials and staff as well as the public were among the attendees.
