DONATIONS are continuing to pour in for orphans, senior citizens and underprivileged families in conjunction with the holy month of Ramadhan.

The Pakistani community in Brunei Darussalam yesterday organised an Iftar dinner as well as a presentation of donations to 126 orphans and 20 senior citizens, in collaboration between the Pakistan High Commission in Brunei Darussalam and Brunei-Muara District Office.

The ceremony took place at the Muhibbah Hall in Old Airport, Berakas, and was attended by Pehin Datu Lailaraja Major General (Rtd) Dato Paduka Seri Haji Awang Halbi bin Haji Mohd Yussof, Deputy Minister of Home Affairs.

Both the deputy minister and the High Commissioner of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan to Brunei Darussalam, Brigadier (Rtd) Muhammad Zareef Malik handed over the donations.

Orphans also received Hari Raya hampers and $50 each from Firoz Khan Namroz Khan, Managing Director of Firoz Jaya Silk House and Textile Palace, Shokat Bukhari from Al-Bukhari Sdn Bhd Textile, Haji Syed Anayat Ullah Shah of Dayang Limah dan Anak-Anak and Muhammad Azam.

The ceremony then continued with the presentation of donations handed over by Thomas Koh from Air Cat Forwarding which amounted to $2,000 for the Brunei-Muara District Orphans Fund.

Firoz Khan said, “Giving donations or other gifts for charity is a noble deed that brings benefits to the donor as well as the recipient.”
