IEEE UiTM Student Branch has organized a programme, Hope 1.0 : Winter Mission for Syria which took place on the 23rd November 2019. The programme is supported by Cinta Syria Malaysia, IEEE Communication Society Malaysia Chapter, IEEE Power & Energy Society Malaysia Chapter and Kolej Teratai, UiTM Shah Alam.
The Hope 1.0 Charity Run 2019 saw over 240 enthusiastic runners assemble for the early morning flag-off on the 5 km challenging path within UiTM Shah Alam. The proceeds of the run were channeled to the Cinta Syria Malaysia which provides funding for the Syrian refugees all over the world.
The highlight of the program is the forum entitled "Tangisan di Syria, Dimanakah kita?" that was held later in the evening. The panelists of the forum are the founder of Cinta Syria Malaysia, Musa Nuwayri and Malaysia's popular artist, Aizat Amdan while the moderator is UiTM Shah Alam Jawatankuasa Perwakilan Pelajar, Aqib Fawwaz.
