The Belait District Senior Citizens Association (PWE) recently distributed donations to less fortunate residents in the district.

The association led by its Secretariat Haji David @ Haji Muhammad Abu Daud bin Haji Kassim, Special Duties Officer Haji Bujang bin Rasin and his assistant Parajin bin Haji Sairan presented donations to Siti Sabareena binti Hanifah in RPN Kampong Panaga Jalan Parak, Seria and Talip bin Haji Jopery at RPN Kapong Lumut, Jalan Mengkubok.

Haji David said the donation was not only to help those in need during Ramadhan but also to encourage participation of the elderly in a charitable activity.

The donation also served as an avenue for the association to carry out its mission and vision. The association, established in July 12, 1995, will celebrate its silver jubilee this year.
