Victims of a house fire received BND1,200 in financial assistance from the Brunei government – through the Community Development Department (JAPEM) under Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports (MCYS) – during a ceremony at the MCYS yesterday.

Fire tore through the Mukim Serasa bungalow house on March 16.

Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports Major General (Rtd) Dato Paduka Seri Awang Haji Aminuddin Ihsan bin Pehin Orang Kaya Saiful Mulok Dato Seri Paduka Haji Abidin handed over the financial assistance to Rosnani binti Libut, the head of the household.

JAPEM Acting Director Rostinah binti Pehin Orang Kaya Seri Sura Pahlawan Dato Paduka Haji Mohd Tahir also attended.

The financial assistance hopes to ease the burden of the fire victims, and demonstrates the government’s concern for the welfare and well-being of its people.
