Fundraising for the Underprivileged Elderly
Young Entrepreneur Association Brunei (YEAB) is a non-profit organisation that represents entrepreneurs below the age of 40 who are founders, co-founders, owners, partners, shareholders, or holding a management position in a corporation or firm registered in Brunei Darussalam. As part of their CSR outreach, and in an effort to ensure all members of our community are cared for, YEAB is collecting donations to fund renovations and necessities for an underprivileged group of elderly persons (aged approximately 60-70 years old) based in Seria with no family caring for them, two of which have mental/ physical disabilities requiring full time care.
YEAB commits to several rounds of CSR outreach during the year, and this outreach round is focused on the Chinese New Year period. The plight of these elderly persons was brought to YEABs attention through a volunteer who has been assisting them. They currently live below normal living standards, with minimal part time care, and YEAB is committed to ensuring they are able to have the basic necessities to live comfortably.
All monetary donations will fund the renovation of their current lodging, and any extra funding will go toward funding a full-time carer for them as well as their essential everyday items.
Donations can be made through the Community For Brunei’s website. Every dollar counts so join YEAB’s community efforts today to leave no one behind and help these elderly persons find the basic care they need in their daily lives.
