The Young Entrepreneurs Association Brunei (YEAB) in collaboration with Progresif presented donations to 10 underprivileged families residing in the Temburong district recently.
The contributions included Raya baskets and necessities aimed to lessen the burden of the families for the preparation of the festive Hari Raya Aidilfitri season.
A total of $1650 worth of donations were raised from multiple partners such as Nexploit Services, Brunei Timber, Express Brunei, MG Premier Motors, JCWE Sdn Bhd, Boon Kiat, and an anonymous donor.
YEAB expressed their sincerest gratitude to the village head of Kg Bukok Abdullah Hj Mahmud and advisor to the Kg Bukok village consultative council (MPK) Abdullah Abas for their support and assistance during the preparation period.
“It would not be smooth sailing without their guidance,” read a statement.
Over the past years, YEAB has presented Raya baskets and contributions to 120 less fortunate students in Pusat Belia, Temburong.
The annual initiative that started in 2008 is part of the association’s efforts to involve its members in social awareness activities and community work. -Rafidah Hamit.
