KBU International College is a strong advocate of giving back to the society. As part of their corporate responsibility, the College organised the 30-Hour Famine 2015, which is an annual event held in collaboration with World Vision - a Christian relief, development and advocacy organisation dedicated to working with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice. The camp is a brainchild of the organisation to educate the next generation on real-world issues, hunger and injustice.

This year, the College hosted more than 200 students from public schools around Petaling Jaya, Selangor, namely SMK Tropicana, SMK Bandar Sri Damansara, SMK Damansara Jaya and Catholic High School. Themed “Hungry for Change”, the 30-Hour Famine Camp was a huge hit.

“This is the second time that I am organizing this 30-hour famine camp. And, I must say that the experience is definitely worthwhile.

Now, I understand the misery that is surrounding underprivileged children,” said the Camp Leader, Jimmy Lim Jing Yi who is one of KBU’s student leaders.

“I am also very touched by the gesture shown by some of our KBU students who were there supporting us, even though their examination is approaching soon,” said the teary-eyed Jimmy who was overwhelmed with the support given by the committee members. 

KBU’s Principal, Dr. Chee Choong Kooi who graced the event said: “We are honored to host such a noble event and be part of it by sponsoring the venue, logistics and T-shirts, even though it is a small contribution from our side, I hope that it will inspire the students to participate and be involved in more charity events in the future and understand the sufferings of others”.

The students were also entertained by a mini concert featuring artists such as Chua Vivian, Yun Mei Sim, Bell, Wee Kheng Ming, Alvin Chong and Eric Lin.
