Izah Azahari

The Brunei Darussalam Red Crescent Society (BDRCS) participated in the 5th Day of Action Programme at the Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium in Berakas yesterday, in conjunction with International Volunteer Day Project 2019.

Organised by the Department of Youth and Sports under the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports (MCYS), the one-day programme invited the public to donate basic food necessities and school supplies to lessen the burden of families in need.

The collection saw a number of individuals extending the infaq sadaqah jariah. The collected items will be distributed at a later date.

The programme aims to serve as a platform to foster a spirit of collaboration among organisations, volunteers and agencies, on top of developing understanding and awareness on volunteerism and community development among youth.
