Charity walk for Palestinians on November 5

Non-governmental organisations, social impact-preneurs, businesses and youth organisations are joining hands to host ‘Steps for Solidarity: A Fundraising Walk for the Palestinian Humanitarian Fund’ on November 5 at BIBD Connects, Taman Mahkota Jubli Emas in the capital.

“The initiative aims to bring together the community as a show of solidarity with the people of Palestine, promote peace, foster awareness and engage in positive fundraising activities for all ages as part of an effort to support the collection of the national humanitarian relief fund for Palestinians in Gaza,” said Young Professionals Network Brunei in a statement yesterday.

Physical boxes will be available during the walk to collect donations, while vendors participating in the event will be contributing all their profits to the humanitarian fund.

Other activities lined up for the event include awareness sessions and pop-up sales across the BIBD Connects vicinity.

The activities are open to the public, which the organisers hope to attract “over 1,000” participants.
