It also saw the distribution of 100 containers of rice porridge and 100 containers of bubur kacang to members of the Belimbing Subok Welfare Home Complex and PPPBD members.

The annual event aims to show appreciation and gratitude to its members involved with various activities and community projects.

It also serves to expose members to community service and encouraging them to participate in charity while fostering closer ties.

This year, PPPBD conducted numerous activities and community projects including Titian Kasih Project, a donation to needy and a series of community activities during Ramadhan.
