Through the last twenty years, both IMU staff and students have been actively involved in charity organisations, health related NGO’s as well as outreach projects in other countries. Some of these projects are initiated and championed by IMU student societies while others are championed by IMU staff through their respective departments.
Among the projects include blood and organ donation drive carried out every semester by the Buddhist Society, fund raising projects by the Muslim Society for orphanages and natural disasters abroad, fund raising by Helen Keller Society for the blind, community projects carried out in villages in Laos by the IMU Community Service Club, Fund raising for MERCY during the tsunami and the earthquake disasters in Iran and Haiti.
Blood and Organ Donation Campaign
Blood donation drives are organized twice a year on a regular basis in IMU. This campaign is directed towards creating awareness, especially among new IMU students to encourage registration of new blood donors, in addition to getting registered blood donors to continue donating blood. The blood collected is given to the National Blood Bank as well as to the Blood Bank of Tuanku Jaafar Hospital which is the IMU teaching hospital. Last year IMU launched an Organ Donation Drive in collaboration with the Malaysian Association of Private Colleges and Universities (MAPCU) that had the participation of 10 other private colleges and universities.
