The local community is concerned about the less fortunate such as senior citizens and orphans in line with the teachings of Islam that encourage its ummah or followers to help each other. Yesterday morning, a donation presentation ceremony was held for senior citizens of Mukim Peramu and orphans in Kampung Ayer.

The donations were presented by Awang Misle bin Haji Abdul Karim, Brunei Muara District Officer. One hundred and fifty senior citizens of Mukim Peramu and five hundred and sixty orphans from Kampung Ayer received donations from Pengarah Dato Paduka Awang Haji Ismit bin Pengarah Mukim Haji Naim, Penghulu of Mukim Peramu. The contributions are hoped to alleviate their burden during the holy month of Ramadan as well as in preparing for Hari Raya Aidil Fitri and to gain the blessings of the month of Ramadhan by increasing the practice of giving alms.
