DEAR PAUM MEMBERS,
University of Malaya assisted the flood victims by sending much needed medicine and equipment to Hospitals and Clinics in Kelantan. UM also assisted communities by building homes and providing water treatment equipment for villages and schools. The University is teaming up with UM Alumni Association and The Red Crescent to initiate long term assistance especially to school children.
UM and UM Alumni (PAUM) planned several programs to raise funds for Yayasan PAUM as all donations received by the ‘Yayasan Persatuan Alumni Universiti Malaya’ are tax exempt. One of the programs is Wayang Kulit in English.
Wayang Kulit is Malaysia’s most famous shadow play which had been performed throughout the country and also in distant lands including the USA. The passion of UM former Vice Chancellor, YBhg Dato’ Prof. Dr. Hashim Yaacob has successfully translated this famous Hindu Ramayana epic into English for the world to better understand the story when told by him as the puppeteer.
The Museum Seni Asia , UM with the support of The University of Malaya Alumni Association will be organizing this presentation especially for the non Kelantanese speaking audience in the Museum of Asian Art, University of Malaya on Saturday, 18 th April 2015.
We hope to get sponsors and donors to make this program a success. Invitations are given to donors or for contributions received, Sponsorship or donations of every Rm 1000 will entitle the sponsor/donor to 10 VIP invitations or 5 invitations for Rm500. Donations exceeding Rm 2000 will entitle logo inclusion in banners and slide during the presentation day.
Do not miss this golden opportunity for family and friends to know Malaysia’s cultural diversity and at the same time help the flood victims especially the school children who lost everything. Donations in the name Wedding of Yayasan Persatuan Alumni Universiti Malaya.
