This initiative marks a proactive step towards enhancing the safety consciousness and self-protection abilities among children, especially in responding to emergencies with composure and promptness.
Dr. Ummu, a mentor at UKM, emphasized the complexity and urgency surrounding child safety issues. “Our goal is to arm children with the knowledge and skills necessary for their protection, ensuring they are equipped to handle potential dangers effectively,” said Dr. Ummu.
The campaign, led by project head Ji Ye Cheng, aims to reach a broader audience, spreading crucial safety knowledge among children. “Addressing the multifaceted issue of child safety is imperative. Through this campaign, we aspire to make a meaningful impact on children’s understanding of safety precautions,” Cheng stated.

We’re eager to impart fire safety knowledge to children, which is instrumental in reducing fire incidents,” said Harun.
The event, characterized by a variety of engaging and educational activities, witnessed the participation of nearly a hundred individuals. It’s a continuation of a series of successful events previously held in various locations around Kuala Lumpur. The IOI City Mall, being the second-largest shopping center globally, offered a more substantial platform and wider impact for this event.
