60 families receive care packages

Baiduri Bank provided groceries to 60 underprivileged special needs families in Brunei as part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Baiduri Bank partnered with The Impian Project, Dart Logistics and Maju Grocer Supermarkets on this initiative as part of the bank’s pledge to co-create with the community and support local non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and businesses.

The ‘Baiduri Care Kit’ initiative aims to provide relief to selected families.

The event took place from September 10 to 12. On the first day, 29 Baiduri Care Kits were delivered to families in Brunei-Muara District. The following day, 10 families from Tutong District received the contributions, and the remaining 21 families from Belait and Temburong districts received their care kits on the third day.

Baiduri Bank Chief Executive Officer Ti Eng Hui said, “It is very encouraging to see a number of local companies, both large and small, contribute items such as personal protective equipment (PPE) and groceries to help combat this pandemic. We also want to do our part by providing some assistance to underprivileged special needs families in the country who may not have the time nor the facilities to go out and purchase their daily necessities.

“We sincerely hope this humble contribution can help alleviate their burden. Through our CSR programme, Baiduri Bank will be running a few more projects in the coming weeks to help with the situation that we, as a country, are facing.”
