Pelajar UMS UlangkajiJUMAAT, 05 JUN - Ibu bapa pelajar Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) dinasihatkan agar tidak panik dan bimbang terhadap keselamatan anak-anak mereka berhubung kejadian gempa bumi sederhana bermagnitud 6.0 pada skala richter yang memberi impak gegaran beberapa daerah di Sabah awal pagi tadi.

Menurut Naib Canselor UMS, Profesor Datuk Dr. Mohd Harun Abdullah, tiada sebarang kecederaan dan kerosakan dilaporkan di universiti itu termasuk di Kampus Antarabangsa Labuan dan Kampus Cawangan Sandakan.

“Semua warga UMS termasuk mahasiswa dalam keadaan baik, namun siasatan secara menyeluruh  kini dijalankan bagi memastikan bangunan-bangunan dan kawasan persekitaran universiti sentiasa dalam keadaan selamat,” ujarnya dalam satu kenyataan di Kota Kinabalu.

Jelasnya, siasatan itu dilaksanakan melalui penubuhan Pasukan Siasatan Bencana Alam meliputi kesemua bangunan-bangunan serta cerun-cerun bukit yang terdapat di dalam kampus.

Beliau berkata, pasukan itu yang diketuai Timbalan Naib Canselor Penyelidikan dan Inovasi, Prof. Dr. Shahril Yusof menjangkakan laporan siasatan siap sepenuhnya pada pukul 3.00 petang ini.

“Pihak pentadbiran UMS turut mengedarkan risalah keselamatan melalui laman sesawang mengenai perkara-perkara yang perlu dilakukan sekiranya menghadapi situasi sama pada masa akan datang.

“Kita juga sentiasa bersedia untuk membantu, berkerjasama dan menyediakan pakar-pakar Geologi untuk mengkaji gempa bumi ini,” tambah Datuk Harun.

Dalam pada itu, beliau turut menafikan sekeras-kerasnya terhadap kenyataan yang disebarkan melalui aplikasi laman sosial yang kononnya terdapat kenyataan daripada ahli Geologi UMS yang menyatakan terdapat gegaran susulan akibat gempa bumi tersebut.

“Ia tidak benar, dan pihak UMS tidak pernah mengeluarkan kenyataan seumpama itu. Jika anda ingin mendapat pengesahan atau kesahihan maklumat yang menggunakan nama UMS, boleh terus menghubungi Bahagian Media dan Citra UMS di talian 088-320000 sambungan 1493 dan 1296,” ujarnya lagi.  

Sementara itu, tinjauan petugas media UMS turut mendapati para pelajar masih menjalankan rutin seperti biasa dan kini meluang lebih masa di Perpustakaan UMS sebagai persiapan untuk menghadapi peperiksaan semester yang akan bermula minggu hadapan.

Program Anak yatim BeringgisFRIDAY, 08 MAY – A total of 39 students of the Student Organisation Management (POP) will join the ‘Jalinan Kasih Mahasiswa Prihatin’ Programme which will be held tomorrow at the Orphanage Home, Beringgis.

According to a spokesman for POP, Bibi Chelve, the programme was aimed at raising public awareness about children who had lost their family members, whilst giving moral support to those who were less fortunate.

“We hope, through this programme, many would be more concerned about the lives of children who are placed in orphanages,” she said when contacted by UMS reporters.

The programme was also to instill self respect and to always love those around us besides being an eye opener for various parties to contribute not only in kind but also from the psychological aspect.

She said moral support such as this was seen to benefit the children who went through difficult days and to continue lives like other children.

“Thus, it is our great hope that this programme would bring awareness to society and emulate the efforts by UMS POP to jointly help these group of people,” she concluded. – SS (fl)
