NBT (Brunei) Sdn Bhd brought smiles to the faces of 80 orphans during the ‘NBT Cares With Orphans’ event at the Lexus Showroom yesterday.

The annual event is part of NBT (Brunei) 2021 corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme, aimed at bringing Ramadhan cheers to the orphans from all four districts. The recipients were identified with support from RPN Kampong Panchor Mengkubau Volunteers Committee.

NBT (Brunei) Managing Director Haji Ahmad Omar bin Haji Husin and NBT (Brunei) Senior General Manager Leong Cheng Soon handed out green packet and goodie bags to recipients.

The children also staged a song performance and poetry recital.

NBT, its staff and their families chipped in towards the contribution, which was then added to NBT’s donation for the orphans.

Haji Ahmad Omar said, “On behalf of NBT, I would like to say what a pleasure it is for NBT, our staff and their families to be able to bring some extra joy to the orphans during Ramadhan. This is obviously thanks to the Brunei community’s strong, continuous trust and support for Toyota, Lexus, and NBT. On behalf of our company, I would like to wish everyone a ‘Selamat Menunaikan Ibadah Puasa’. Please stay and safe healthy, everyone.”
