To celebrate the holy month of Ramadhan, Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP) Alumni recently organised UTP Iftar Alumni Gathering at KLCC. Even though it was an iftar event, it was not limited to the Muslims only as the non-Muslims were also invited to the gathering.
To start the event, Ustaz Dawi Cahyono of UTP delivered a talk that stressed the importance of helping people in need and the joy we get in return in doing this good deed.
UTP Deputy Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs and Alumni, En. Mohamed Noor Rosli Baharom in his speech announced that UTP Alumni will collaborate with HRM and Human Resource Shared Services Centre (HR SSC) PETRONAS in creating a platform for all UTP alumnus to serve PETRONAS and its subsidiaries to provide back to their alma through a monthly salary deduction. With this contribution members could:
- Contribute to Zakat – Members can pay zakat via salary deduction to UTP as the university has been appointed as the “Amil” for “Majlis Agama Islam Perak”.
- Contribution to UTP Alumni – This is to enable members to contribute to expand UTP Alumni brand. UTP Alumni will conduct activities to enhance its image within its surrounding community.
- Special Project for Alumni Building.
Also present at the iftar were two representatives from HRSSC PETRONAS En Mohd Sabri Mohd Aboo Tahir and Puan Suzana Hussin.
