A group of lecturers and administration staff from Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR) came over to a gurdwara at Tanjung Tualang Sikh Settlement, about 40km south of Ipoh, in mid-January as part of their community engagement activity.
“Activities on that day, mural painting, landscaping, repaint the gudwara and of course makan-makan! Vegetarian food cooked by the volunteers,” said Qamar Rahman, a lecturer from UTAR’s Faculty of Arts and Social Science. See here.
The gurdwara at Tanjung Tualang Sikh Settlement, about 40km south of Ipoh, was hit by floods after days of non-stop rain in January 2017. Some of the houses in the neighbourhood were also affected by thee floods. The gurdwara was last hit by monsoon floods in 1999.
The volunteers are on the lookout for more such opportunities, according to Qamar in his Facebook posting.
