Baiduri Bank continued its ‘Let’s Give Back This Ramadhan’ initiative in Belait District yesterday, taking eight underprivileged families on an all-expense paid trip for Hari Raya essentials at Soon Lee Megamart, Pandan branch.

The initiative is part of Baiduri Bank’s annual corporate social responsibility, and comes following the shopping spree and iftar with underprivileged families in Temburong District earlier this week.

Baiduri Bank Deputy Chief Executive Officer (Business Development) Pengiran Azaleen bin Pengiran Dato Haji Mustapha led the bank team.

The bank identified the eight families with the help of Brunei Council on Social Welfare (MKM).

The Let’s Give Back This Ramadhan series sees Baiduri Bank teaming up with MKM as well as Dart Brunei, in support of local enterprises.

Pengiran Azaleen said, “In the spirit of collaboration, we’ve partnered with supermarkets for the shopping spree experience, restaurants for iftar, and Dart Brunei for the transportation of these families to and from their homes to the venues.

“We hope to provide these families, and Insya Allah, more families from across all districts with some peace of mind and joy as they prepare for the festivities.”

Following the shopping spree, the families were treated to iftar at Serikandi Cafe and Restaurant.

Baiduri Bank will hold a similar event with families in Tutong District on April 26.
