Voluntary Works

12 members of the Community Welfare Council, MKM are now in Bangladesh to continue the Humanitarian Mission at the Balokhali Rohingya Refugee Camp. They departed late yesterday afternoon for the 2nd such mission and will distribute more than 13 thousand food packs as well as continue the tube well construction organised previously for the use of the refugee camp. The distribution of contributions and tube well construction are funded by financial contributions from the public.

The delegation led by Datin Paduka Hajah Intan Binti Haji Kassim, included three youths who will be exposed to voluntary works. MKM also has brought more than 100 kilograms of sweets in the mission which will be distributed to the Rohingya's children. According the previous mission, sweets were the children's favourite. The Head of the MKM Humanitarian Mission stated that they will build at least another extra 50 to 60 tube wells. They will distribute food packs to 4,060 refugees and build a school for them. The donations are not just from Brunei but also from Singapore, Malaysia and Canada. He added that it is hoped a database will be built which will enable them to start an adopt a child programme in order to fund the children for a month.
