A total of 500 containers of Bubur Nasi and 500 containers of Bubur Kacang were distributed by Girl Guides Association of Brunei Darussalam (PPPBD) members yesterday as part of the Sedekah Bubur Barakah Programme to mark its 12th Community Day celebration which also coincides with welcoming the month of Zulhijjah.

The programme saw PPPBD members preparing, cooking and packing the meal at its headquarters in Kampong Anggerek Desa and distributing them to selected organisations including the Welfare Home Complex in Kampong Belimbing Subok and several mosques and fuel stations within the Brunei-Muara and Tutong districts.

The programme aimed to encourage PPPBD members to assist the community especially those in need of assistance and to foster closer relationship among members.

PPPBD Chief Commissioner Hajah Siti Hafsah binti Haji Abdul Halim, assistant head of commissioners, and association members were also present.
