PENGKALAN CHEPA 20 March  I Universiti Malaysia Kelantan (UMK) took the initiative to provide free food assistance to students in residential colleges who did not return home following the Movement Control Order (MCO) issued by the Malaysian Government from March 18 to 31, 2020.
UMK Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Dato’ Ts. Dr. Noor Azizi Ismail said the provision of free food twice a day during the MCO has been distributed to students starting today.
He said there were 1,000 students still in UMK, 749 students at UMK City Campus residential college and 241 students at Jeli Campus UMK residential college.
"This free lunch is provided at 11am and 6.30pm with the aim of limiting the movement of students and helping them remain on campus,” he said.
Also present were the Vice-Chancellor (Student Affairs and Alumni), Prof. Ts Dr. Zaliman Sauli and Deputy Registrar of Student Affairs Unit and Alumni, Muhammad Annuar Ismail.
Prof. Dato’ Ts. Dr. Noor Azizi called on all students to obey and stay on campus during the MCO period to reduce the spread of the Covid 19 outbreak.
“All students need to use the space and time available to review the lessons. I hope the results of this year's student exams are better than last semester.
“During the MCO period, UMK has also opened the UMK Covid-19 Movement Room which operates 24 hours as a student reference centre. Any inquiries or assistance can be made to the officer on duty,” he said.
Meanwhile, Prof. TS. Dr. Zaliman said providing free food assistance is given to all students who are still on campus (residential colleges and rented houses).
“This will help ease the burden and difficulty of students in obtaining food supplies during  MCO period.
“This initiative by UMK is to ensure the health and safety of UMK citizens especially students are safe wherever they are.
"This is to ensure that the movement of students is controlled and in accordance with the instructions and guidelines issued by the National Security Council, the Ministry of Higher Education (MHE) and the Ministry of Health Malaysia (MOH) from time to time," he said.
