SYARIKAT Takaful Brunei Darussalam Sdn Bhd yesterday presented some charitable donations to 183 recipients comprising orphans and less fortunate people from the Brunei-Muara District.
The donations were in the form of 732 metres of various new textiles and cash collected from the contributions of Takaful Brunei’s personnel.
They were presented in a ceremony that took place at the Dar Takaful IBB Utama Building in Bandar Seri Begawan by Takaful Brunei’s Acting Managing Director, Haji Shahrildin bin Pehin Orang Kaya Lela Utama Dato Paduka Haji Jaya.
Also in attendance were representatives of the recipients from Tanah Jambu and Katok A primary schools, Pehin Datu Seri Maharaja Secondary School, Mentiri, the Department of Community Development (JAPEM), Pengiran Anak Puteri Hafizah Sururul Bolkiah Religious School, Kampung Rimba’s Village Head Puspa Wira bin Haji Md Noor, as well as the staff and officers of Takaful Brunei.
The donations are hoped to inspire others in the country to come together and be involved as a community with the spirit of giving alms during the month of Ramadhan.
The donations presentation was one of a line-up of activities that Takaful Brunei has planned for the holy month with the aim of easing the financial burdens of those in need.
As Ramadhan draws nearer, Muslims are reminded to be grateful and give back.
They are also advised to be mindful in their spending and encouraged to plan and budget their expenses.
