The celebration of Christmas is often associated with the season of giving. To spread the spirit of sharing and giving, First City University College’s Student Affairs and Services Department organised a charity bazaar on behalf of Pertubuhan Anak Yatim Mary Kuala Lumpur.

The charity bazaar encompassing pre-loved items donated by First City UC community was a major hit among the students and staff.

“We are delighted to inform that the proceeds from the charity bazaar were used to buy school supplies and bedding items for the underprivileged children at Pertubuhan Kebajikan Anak Yatim Mary KL,” said SASD Head Ms Florence Kuek.  

The charity bazaar was supported by many, including the wife of First City Corporation Director, Puan Sri Luan Teo who baked marble cakes and donated a generous portion of items to the orphanage home.

Ms Malar Mathews who is the owner of the orphanage home was elated that the children will benefit enormously with the donated items.

“The children are really happy to receive help from First City UC as now they have new school supplies to start their academic journey with,” said Ms Malar.

As a strong advocate of giving back to the society, First City UC has identified Pertubuhan Kebajikan Anak Yatim Mary KL (formerly known as Sanctuary Care Centre) as one of the orphanage homes to support since 2013.

The orphanage home which houses about 80 children aged between 3 to 19 years old, also engages in other activities by providing spiritual direction, counselling and encouragement to those who are emotionally hurt.

Over the years, First City UC’s staff and students were also engaged in activities which benefit the Bandar Utama community. One such activity is to design the model for BU2 Resident Association (BURA2) guard house and with that design BURA 2 has been recognised as a guarded community, benefiting the residents in terms of security and safety.

Activities such as this do not only mould First City UC students to be industry-ready for the job market but also imbibe them with a sense of humanity and belonging to a larger community.

On top of that, First City UC provides the best learning experience for its students through its state-of-the-art teaching and learning facilities. With its well qualified and experienced teaching force, the institution provides a wholesome education journey for its students, where First City UC graduates are hired right after their graduation and in many instances even before graduation.
