Donation drive to realise zero poverty vision

Syazwani Hj Rosli

The Sukarelawan Belia, with support from the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports (MCYS), is set to hold a donation drive to collect basic essentials for the needy in its effort to realise the country’s aspiration to eradicate poverty by 2035.

The campaign will be held every Thursday and Sunday, from 2-8pm, starting July 3 at the Indoor Stadium of the Hassanal Bolkiah National Sports Complex in Berakas.

Among the essential items are rice, sugar, flour, eggs, canned food, bread, biscuits, instant drinks and syrups, potatoes, canned fruits, dishwashing liquids, floor cleaners, soaps, tissues, toilet brooms, bleach and toiletries.

Sukarelawan Belia Leader Hajah Noor Monasalieana @ Suzie binti Haji Mohd Salleh said the organisation aims to expand “our collection efforts due to the overwhelmingly positive response from the public during a similar event held recently. With a donation station, it will be easier for members of the public to drop off their contributions without having to get out of their cars”.
