WEDNESDAY, 17 JUNE – Concerned about the fate of victims of the earthquake tragedy which happened on 5 June, a group of academic and non-academic staff of the Faculty of Psychology and Education (FPP), Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) recently visited the families of the affected at Kampung Kiau Taburi, Kota Belud.
With the collaboration of the Malaysian Counsellor Board, the programme named Sharing Hope was aimed to provide counseling to the families of the victims who are still traumatised and scarred by the disaster.
According to the head of the programme, Habibie Ibrahim, the group also donated financial assistance which was handed over directly to the said villagers.
“The counselling service involving FPP Social Work Club is seen to be very timely to inspire those affected to continue with their daily lives,” she said.
Also lending their services were a group of students under the Master of Counselling Psychology in Substance Abuse (SPADA). – SM (fl)
