Bandar Seri Begawan - The "Better Hearing, Better Living" Charity Bazaar will run from February 1 to February 3 at The Atrium of The Mall in Gadong.
This is the main fundraising event for the "Better Hearing, Better Living" Charity project aimed at purchasing hearing aids for hearing impaired school-aged children in Brunei Darussalam. The priority is to help local children who cannot be educated properly at schools because of their loss of hearing.
Over 30 vendors will be selling and exhibiting a range of items like the latest Hyundai car models at the Hyundai Pavilion, computers by Concept Computers, Takaful Insurance, homeware, clothing carpets, food and much more.
The Association of the Hearing-Impaired (Persatuan Orang Kurang Pendengaran) will be displaying educational information. They will also conduct some activities to promote better understanding on hearing loss.
You can also donate by buying our project T-shirts and a range of baked goods at Booth No 35. All sale proceeds will go straight to the fund.
The Project Coordinator, Hear Better Services Company, a local hearing solutions centre, is working together with the Special Education Unit at the Ministry of Education, the Community Development Department under the Ministry of Culture Youth and Sports and Children's Development Centre, Ministry of Health.
All recipients will be identified by these government agencies and their progress monitored. If you would like to donate to the fund or find out more about this project, call the Hear Better Services Company at 2454433.
