The Brunei Council on Social Welfare (MKM) launched its youth wing at it’s office in Kampong Sungai Hanching, Mukim Mentiri yesterday.
It was officiated by MKM President Mohd Yusof bin Halim together with the Head of MKM Youth Wing Abang Haji Muhd Masrur bin Abang Haji Zainuddin who is also an Executive Committee Member of MKM.
MKM Youth Wing has 13 members and was developed to increase MKM’s social outreach among youth in the country by organising youth-targetted projects.
Mohd Yusof said, “The youth wing will have some degree of autonomy in the projects they embark on so long as it is within the primary objective of promoting the welfare of the needy.”
The ceremony also saw the appointment of former MKM President Datin Paduka Hajah Intan binti Haji Mohd Kassim as Advisor for MKM Youth Wing.
