James Kon & Lyna Mohamad

A sense of excitement was palpable during the Hari Raya Shopping with Underprivileged Children event at YMRM in Tungku Link on Saturday, organised by Care4Kommuniti.

Malaysian High Commissioner to Brunei Darussalam cum guest of honour Dato’ Raja Reza bin Raja Zaib Shah helped the 30 children pick the fabric for their festive attire.

The event serves as a platform allowing donors to contribute during the holy month of Ramadhan.

Dato’ Raja Reza commended Care4Kommuniti for the initiative, and expressed hopes that other Malaysian companies will hold similar corporate social responsibility programmes to help the needy, particularly during the fasting month.

Meanwhile, a separate initiative saw Persatuan Kebajikan Melayu Se-Malaysia (PKMS) in collaboration with the Malaysian High Commission in Brunei Darussalam distributing 3,000 containers of bubur lambuk at Amanah Harith Restaurant in Jerudong.

Dato’ Raja Reza, who helped distribute the signature Malaysian porridge, said the project is an annual one involving personnel from the Malaysian High Commission and PKMS.

“Ramadhan is a month of sharing, and encourages the giving of alms and engaging in charity causes.

“At the same time, it also encourages the gotong-royong spirit among the Malaysian community and the high commission.

“The bubur lambuk is a contribution from the Malaysian community in the Sultanate. We hope to continue this activity in the coming years. A portion of the bubur lambuk was also distributed to mosques in the area, the ingredients of which were contributed by the Malaysian community,” he said.
