SMARTER Brunei, in Collaboration with Team A.L.I.C.E or Appreciating the Lives of Individuals with Autism and Celebrating their Excellence from Pengiran Anak Puteri Rashidah Sa'adatul Bolkiah Institute of Health Sciences, Universiti Brunei Darussalam, UBD hosted their 5th Musical Charity Concert titled "Looking Through The Autism Wonderland". The event was held last night at the International Convention Centre in Berakas.
The presentation of certificates of appreciation from SMARTER and UBD to major stakeholders and corporate sponsors of the event was handed over by Yang Berhormat Retired Major General Dato Paduka Seri Haji Aminuddin Ihsan bin Pehin Orang Kaya Saiful Mulok Dato Seri Paduka Haji Abidin, the Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports.
Malai Haji Abdullah bin Malai Haji Othman, the President of SMARTER Brunei in his opening remarks said that the reason for the musical was to debunk the negative stereo type image associated with Autism. The objectives of the event were to improve the community awareness on autism and to promote the perception that IWA's are each uniquely talented and 'differently abled', as opposed to 'disabled'.
