Famous Philosopher Aristotle once said, "To give away money is an easy matter ... and in any man's power. But to decide to whom to give it, and how large and when, for what purpose and how, is neither in every man's power nor an easy matter. Hence it is that such excellence is rare, praiseworthy and noble."

As you may have noticed, QSUM is no longer acting as a mere forum that brings our members together but also engage with the fulfillment of a number of social responsibilities as an association of professionals. As part of this endeavor, QSUM is now used as a conduit by the members to interact and assist the unnoticed and needy people of our motherland.

In 2012, QSUM members joined their hands to donate substantial amount of clothes and stationeries to a large number of families living in the war affected rural villages in Sri Lanka. In 2013, QSUM members moved a further step forward and raised approximately AED 25,000 and donated 14 surgical adjustable beds to Thabuttegama Base Hospital in Sri Lanka. As confirmed by the doctors, this donation was a great support to alleviate the discomfort and the pain of the patients due to lack of such facilities.

The charity event organized by the QSUM has a fixed place in the QSUM annual event calendar and in the year 2014, QSUM once again organized a charity box event to donate school supplies to the students of Miriswelpotha Vidyalaya and Thibbakolakatiya Vidyalaya which are located at Udawalawa.

We would like to thank all our members who have contributed generously to support this needy cause and we are committed to continue our social responsibility in the future too. We also would like to thank Building Economics Students’ Society (BESS) of the University of Moratuwa for their enormous strive in reaching the needy schools and the students who are having bright future ahead and their continuous support in distribution of these donations.

“Let a little donation from you make a big smile on a needy person’s face”

Here are some moments of this great event which took place on 30th March 2015.

QSUM Outdoor Gathering 2015 PDF Print E-mail

It was another remarkable event organized by the QSUM, which lead the spirit of unity in every single moment. QSUM Outdoor Gathering 2015, from the word itself brought an enthusiastic encounter to all the members who live in UAE. This year, it was decided to scatter around the “One to One Hotel” in Al Ain, bit far from the city of Dubai but flourished with bunch of new experience to everyone on 27th and 28th in the month of February.
As planned before, it was successful in every aspect where all could join for one expectation. That’s all about to share the joy and happiness. We, as Quantity Surveyors in profession belong to a busy life style filled with commitments where we hardly find a moment to relax and lean against the joy of life. Hence, it’s our passion to seek a way out to enrich the life with enjoyment collectively. In fact, we believed that this kind of an outdoor gathering may drive us towards the goal.
At the sun set of the first day, it was really difficult to find out a face wrinkled with tiredness emerged due to the distance they travelled. No matter how they are matured in age, all could perform in numerous game events organized for both elders and kids.  In fact, we were admired to see how the childish nature of all grown-ups aroused with these gaming events.
Notwithstanding the above, on the same day, darkness in the night could not bring the drowsiness to us anymore. It was the real party time filled with music and drama where all the potentials were blessed to perform. Born talents and hidden talents were properly mixed up to wrap the attention and enthusiasm of the crowd without float away. We honestly believe we could make an arena for new comers and those who had the same experience years ago.
Next day was allocated for another set of games and many more activities for all age groups. Number of sports events and outdoor activities were arranged to facilitate the participants to get an uncommon experience never had before. Delicious foods and well furnished villas for accommodation brought us a memorable stay during the both days.
Here are some moments of this great event.
