Two containers containing some 115,000 food packs recently departed to Palestine as part of the donations from people and residents of Brunei to the Palestine Humanitari­an Fund 2021.

The fund which was opened to the public for three months starting 26 May 2021 until 23 August 2021 saw a collection of $1,245100.15 for the purchase of food packs and ambulances.

Appointed by the Committee of the Palestine Humanitari­an Fund 2021, local company Ghanim Internatio­nal Corporatio­n previously signed a Memorandum of Understand­ing (MoU) with UNRWA on 9 February 2022 to supply food through the initiative.

Two 40 feet containers containing 2000 cartons of convenient and nutrient-dense Chicken Kabsa, Chicken Jerish and Beef Rendang left for departure on 20 April 2021.

Through this contributi­on, it is hoped to ease the burden and ensure the survival of the Palestinia­n people, said Ghanim in a statement.

Witnessing the departure was Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Finance and Economy Pengiran Hajah Zety Sufina Pengiran Dato Paduka Haji Sani, and Permanent Secretary (Community and Culture) at Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports Hajah Nor Ashikin Haji Johari as well as senior officers from MCYS and board members of Ghanim Internatio­nal.
