The Pusat Ehsan Al-Ameerah Al-Hajjah Maryam, the Children’s Cancer Foundation (YASKA) and the Society for the Management of Autism Related issues in Training, Education and Resources (SMARTER) Brunei received BND1,000 each from Burger King Brunei, under the management of Sinofood Express yesterday.

The handing over ceremony took place at the Burger King branch of Citis Square. Students, parents and staff from each non-governmental organisation were treated to meals at Burger King in conjunction with the Teacher’s Day celebration. Sinofood Express introduced a corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme in 2015, with the installation of donation boxes at every outlet and these donations were compiled and donated to SMARTER Brunei, Pusat Ehsan, and YASKA.

Sinofood Express Director Wu Chun presented the mock cheque to the organisations. Wu Chun said, “CSR is part of our company’s culture, in recognising that as a business we love giving back to the community and to engage with them.”
