Five families in rural Belait received donations from a charity project organised by Brunei Gas Carriers Sdn Bhd (BGC) yesterday.

The BGC contingent, as part of their ninth instalment of ‘Project Amali’, travelled to Mukim Labi in the Belait District to hand over donations to the less fortunate.

BGC staff, led by BGC’s People Manager Md Khairol Amilin bin Haji Maidin also met with Village Head of Kampong Labi 1 Hanapi bin Mohd Siput.

The families were identified by the Community Development Department and the Mukim and Village Consultative Councils.

Md Khairol Amilin said the company was delighted to have been able to contribute and lend a helping hand to the families of the Labi community, especially during the month of Ramadhan.

In visiting the residences, BGC staff said they were able to know more about their struggles, which helped to galvanise them into planning similar charitable events in the future.
