BIBD through its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative, today visited the residents of the blazen longhouse of Kampung Sumbiling Baru in Temburong District that left most families without any basic necessities.
The CSR team led by Hjh Sharmirawati Hj Azamain assembled in the earlymorning and began their journey towards the Temburong District to deliver the donation, food hampers and clothings, that were gathered through the combined efforts and resources of generous BIBD employees.
“Alhamdulillah, with this contribution, to some extent, can help ease the expenses of the affected families, especially in preparation for the approaching holy month of Ramadan” said Hjh Nurul Akmar binti Haji Mohd Jaafar, Head of BIBD’s Corporate Social Responsibility. She also added, “This can only be achieved with the concerted efforts and a sense of caring of CSR team and BIBD employee as a whole, which we are very proud of”.
A member of the CSR team express sympathy and sadness looking at the charred site of the homes and amazed on the patience shown by the affected families. She was however thankful to be able to make the trip and to personally handed over the donations to some of the families.
BIBD CSR has always been sensitive and concern to the needs of the less fortunate and will do its best to extend their assistance in any forms, should such an opportunity arise, which further underscore BIBD being Bruneian at Heart.
This internal charity initiative is also in line with the BIBD CSR objective in creating awareness and developing individuals who are socially responsible according to the faith that we embrace.
