Elderly learn sustainable health practices

The Ministry of Health, through the Health Promotion Centre (HPC), organised a talk on Halalan Thayyiban as part of a series of health programmes for the elderly at the Language and Literature Bureau (DBP) Kampong Pandan Library, Kuala Belait yesterday.

Assistant lecturer at the Halalan Thayyiban Research Centre of Universiti Islam Sultan Sharif Ali Nor Surilawana binti Haji Sulaiman shared knowledge on Halalan Thayyiban nutrition to maintain sustainable health.

The programme also saw practical activities to apply the knowledge gained to real-world examples and scenarios. The programme is an initiative of HPC to empower the elderly to practise a sustainable and healthy lifestyle by equipping them with knowledge of halal concepts and principles, basic concepts of hygiene and food safety for sustainable practices, as well as tips on checking the ingredients before buying.

The initiative supports the second goal of Brunei Vision 2035 – to have a high quality of life which is in line with the principles of Maqasid Syariah of preserving intellect, faith, life and wealth.

The centre also hopes the programme has helped the elderly make better choices that leads to a healthy lifestyle. – Daniel Lim
