The Brunei Darussalam Red Crescent Association will take part in the Red Crescent Association's Youth Voluntary Campaign in Kelantan, Malaysia starting tomorrow until June 3rd. The 10 member delegation left the country this afternoon.
Before departure, the National Flag was handed over by the Acting director of the Co-curriculum Education Department, Awang Haji Kassim bin Haji Mohd Yassin to the head of the Red Crescent Association delegation, Dayang Izat binti Haji Tuah. Also present was the President of Brunei Darussalam Red Crescent Association, Datin Hajah Siti Hajar. The campaign program includes sharing experience on disaster mobilisation, understanding local culture, health, environmental and recreational activities, as well as a home stay program.
In an interview with RTB, the Secretary General of the Red Crescent Association, Awang Haji Julaini bin Haji Latif hoped that the International Red Crescent Jamboree organised by the Malaysia Red Crescent Association in Kelantan will further empower youth, inline with the government's policy. He said, such a campaign is important in further developing character building as the young generation will not only be the future leader of the association, but also Brunei Darussalam.
The campaign programme, jointly organised by the Asia Pacific Red Cross and Red Crescent, aims to further develop understanding and cooperation among members of the association in the region as well as to empower knowledge, experience, skills and opportunity to interact with their international colleagues.
