Some 50 individuals from the National Hearing Impaired (OKP) Association were treated to a recreational activity at Tasek Tang Salangan in Kampong Tungku Katok yesterday.

The activity, organised by the Brunei Muara Scouts Association (PPDBM), marked the Day of Action (DOA) celebration and commemorated People with Disability International Day.

It also served as a community outreach programme of PPDBM in caring for special needs’ individuals as well as a community drive activity of the PPDBM, while marking the curtain raiser for the association’s activity calendar for the community programme.

Community Development Department (JAPEM) Acting Director at the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports (MCYS) Mohammad Khairul Shahrul bin Haji Duahim was the guest of honour.

The two-hour event featured recreational activities such as kayaking and tour of the Tang Salangan farm. The event’s highlight was the releasing of fish into a pond and planting of calamansi saplings.
