Let’s help our struggling neighbour

It saddens me to read about our neighbouring country now struggling with the COVID-19 pandemic when we here in Brunei are well taken care of, thanks to the prompt action of our government in containing the spread.

The situation is quite grim there; quite a few of my friends are facing job insecurity as they watch their colleagues getting let go by the company, one by one.

I would like to propose that we set up a fund for the country, to lend them a helping hand. Hopefully by raising some money for the people, we could ease their financial burden.
