BRUNEI Council on Social Welfare (MKM) handed over proceeds from its recent cycling and running event in conjunction with World Cancer Day 2019 to the Breast Cancer Support Group (BCSG) and the Children’s Cancer Foundation (YASKA) yesterday.

MKM President Mohd Yusof bin Halim presented the proceeds to President of BCSG Hajah Aminah binti Haji Momin and the Vice Chairperson of YASKA Tsara’ Nawwarah binti Abdullah Chen during a cheque presentation ceremony at the office of MKM in the capital.

MKM organised the cycling and running event on February 3 and produced badges depicting various ribbon colours of cancer that were sold at the event and also at many leading bookshops including Nolle Bookshop and D’BookHaus. All profits from the sales of these badges were given equally to BCSG and YASKA.

Following the ceremony, members of the three associations shared their experiences and ideas and pledged to foster better working relationships among each other.
