The charity event was held in conjunction with the company’s Hari Raya celebration at their Serasa headquarters and was attended by all staff. A total of 62 orphans from Mukim Serasa along with their guardians were invited with Ketua Kampung Pengiran Haji Mohamed Pengiran Haji Osman as the guest of honour.
