The practice of almsgiving is very synonymous with the month of Ramadhan. Among the advantages of almsgiving that can be achieved is not only the reward but also to strengthen the relationship between the donor and the recipient. Apart from that, the opportunity to do infak in this blessing month is wide open. In this country, associations and the private sector take the opportunity to donate in sharing the blessings of this holy month.
Pertubuhan Bina Ukhwah is among those who did not miss the opportunity by running its annual programme, "Jelajah Ramadhan". The project, which started in 2017, aims to encourage youths to volunteer as well as encourage people to donate while spending for those in need.
Its operation was also assisted by youth volunteers. Through the project, youths are not only able to build their identity but it is also a responsibility to help and provide energy towards the well-being of the community.
Meanwhile, McDonald's Brunei also continued its charitable activities and Corporate Social Responsibility by donating food for breaking the fast to several mosques in Brunei Muara District.
In addition, the company also distributed about one hundred packs of Egg Muffins for the frontliners for breaking their fast.
The Women's Bureau and the Economic Bureau of the Kampung Panchor National Housing Scheme Consultative Council, Mentiri, also conducted Projek Indahnya Berbagi in the month of Ramadhan. Through the project, donations were distributed to single mothers which are hoped to ease the burden of their financial expenses, especially during the month of Ramadhan and upcoming Syawal.
