The Belait District Scouts Association marked the start of their Day of Action (DOA) campaign with donations of solar lighting to two senior citizens in an event at Johari bin Abdullah Manai’s home in Kampong Merangking Ulu, Mukim Bukit Sawat.

The campaign began with the recitation of Doa by Abdul Hakim Jerry Shah bin Muhd Juli, followed by the handing over of the two solar lightings, which was entrusted to the Brunei Darussalam Scouts Association.

The handover was officiated by Penghulu Mukim Bukit Sawat Haji Salleh bin Haji Othman who handed over the first solar lighting to Head of DOA campaign Skipper Muhd Juli bin Abdullah, for Johari’s home.

Kampong Merangking Village Head Raimey bin Abdullah handed over the second one to PW2 (R) Haji Khairdon bin Haji Dahlan from the Royal Brunei Armed Forces Veteran Association for Hamis bin Matiddin home in Kampong Kenapol, Mukim Labi.
