Brunei Gas Carriers Sdn Bhd (BGC) held a Korban ceremony yesterday in collaboration with Kampong Jerudong Village Consultative Council to mark Hari Raya Aidiladha as part of its social investment initiative.

The event took place at Sayyidina Husain Secondary School, attended by BGC Deputy Managing Director Pengiran Shamhary bin Pengiran Dato Paduka Haji Mustapha and Pehin Orang Kaya Lela Pahlawan Major General (Rtd) Dato Paduka Seri Haji Mohd Jaafar bin Haji Abdul Aziz who also distributed the sacrificial meat to 40 underprivileged families.

Also joining the distribution of meat was BGC’s Contracts and Procurement Manager Pengiran Dianawaty binti Pengiran Haji Matzin and People Manager Md Khairul Amilin bin Maidin.

In light of the global COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s meat distribution was carried out in a drive-through format to ensure social distancing measures were upheld.

The event, aimed at supporting underprivileged families in Kampong Jerudong, saw the sacrifice of two buffaloes and one cow.
