Marking Breast Cancer Awareness Month with charity fundraiser

Royal Brunei Airlines (RB) joined in on the global Breast Cancer Awareness Month initiative by holding a charity fundraiser at RB Campus yesterday.

The event saw various activities taking place including a bake sale and charity auction featuring pink desserts symbolising the breast cancer awareness campaign. All proceeds were donated to Children’s Cancer Foundation (YASKA) and Brunei Breast Cancer Support Group (BBCSG), and received by YASKA Board member Siti Zaleha Abdi Manaf and BBCSG President Hajah Aminah binti Haji Momin.

A breast cancer screening booth was also provided by Jerudong Park Medical Centre (JPMC) for RB’s female staff.

Acting Chief Executive Officer of RB Martin Aeberli said, “We’re delighted to organise the breast cancer awareness day as health and wellness of our people is among the top priorities here in RB.”

He added that the fundraiser “is our way to give back to the community for their on-going support for the national carrier. We’re happy to have this opportunity to raise funds for YASKA and BBCSG”.
