‘Unsung heroes’ receive lunch packs

The Brunei Religious Officers Student Association (BruROSA) conducted its annual summer break project Unsung Heroes themed ‘The Life of Giving’ at the parking area of Jame’ ‘Asr Hassanil Bolkiah on August 23 and 24.

Unsung Heroes, established in 2016, is an annual charity drive event organised by BruROSA. Donations including lunch packs are distributed to construction workers.

The project aims to give back to the construction workers who contribute to the development of the nation. The project also hopes to raise public awareness against discrimination on migrant workers, while instilling the youth with philanthropic values.

On the first day, 12 BruROSA members received donations from 9am to 3pm. The event resumed the next day, where 12 BruROSA members and 21 volunteers received more donations. The donations comprised items such as lunch packs, dry food, canned food, bottled drinks, snacks, cooking oil and rice.

BruROSA members and volunteers then distributed the donations to construction sites including Regent Square, Kampong Kapok Mosque and Jalan Bedil. Two hundred and six construction workers were given lunch packs.

BruROSA is an association of religious officers from across the United Kingdom (UK) and Eire that deals with the religious welfare of Bruneian students studying in the UK and Eire.
