BIBD participated in Charity Walkathon
03 May 2009 – In its effort to give back and support the community, the officers and staff of Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam Berhad (BIBD) participated in the charity walkathon which was organized by the Special Olympics Brunei. The walkathon started off at Taman Sir Omar Ali Saifuddien in the capital and ended at the Stadium Negara Hassanal Bolkiah.
The Special Olympics Brunei (SO Brunei) had organised the walkathon to raise enough funds to sustain its annual activities and programs such as the regular training of its special athletes for various sporting events and in preparation for the World Special Olympics in Athens in 2011.
Under its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives, BIBD and its employees have been supporting the communities through various volunteerism and philanthropic activities. “BIBD would like to praise the people with special needs who also joined the event despite the unpredictable weather and walkathon distance. Their efforts in organizing and participating in the event had really captured our hearts as it shows their high level of independence and determination.” said Hjh Nurul Akmar Hj Md Jaafar, the Head of BIBD’s CSR.
She added that BIBD is dedicated to enhance the quality of life of the community, by not only providing financial contribution but to be more engaged in their activities because “we believe this is consistent with our vision to improve the lives of those around us. At the same time, we want to give everyone in our local communities the chance and opportunity to succeed, and so we support various educational initiatives, as well as civic and community development programmes”.
