Sounds of Hope…

I missed the Sounds of Hope visit to families in poverty yesterday as I was in Miri. Hoping to catch the next one before I leave next month 🙂

From Marul’s FB:

It’s not easy to see when our fellow Bruneians are living in such poverty. During the visit, individuals donated food items, clothing and other daily necessities.

I noticed that most of their living conditions are just not clean, full of trash that could’ve been cleaned up. I guess to them it’s not a bother but I believe if they make an effort to clean it up, I’m sure they will be living a bit comfy.

Today’s visit was mostly to find out the story behind their condition and what kind of help they need.

If you wish to help, please go to the Sounds Of Hope facebook page or email soundsofhope.brunei@gmail.com
