RBAF completes greenhouse repairs at Pusat Bahagia
THE Royal Brunei Armed Forces (RBAF) yesterday finished repairing a greenhouse at Pusat Bahagia as part of its Titian Amal charity project.
Students and trainers at the special needs centre in Kg Pulaie were overjoyed at the completion of their restored greenhouse, which was previously deemed unsafe for use due to its dilapidated wooden-frame and leaky roof.
“InsyaAllah, this greenhouse will continue to be used for teaching natural sciences to students through the care and maintenance of plants,” said this year’s Titian Amal chairman.
Major (L) Hj Norbahrin Hj Muamad explained that repair works were carried out over 18 days by tri-service personnel with the help of Systematic Engineering Sdn Bhd.
They installed second-hand hydroponics and utilised materials from the greenhouse that were in good condition.
He said the repairs that had been undertaken aimed to ensure the greenhouse would be safe and durable for a long period of time.
“This project was also aimed at enhancing our experience as the generation with a vision. Alhamdulillah, this project was successfully finished without any injuries,” he said, hoping the greenhouse reap’s benefits for Pusat Bahagia.
He also pointed out that RBAF had conducted various beautification works at the centre since 2002 under Titian Amal.
The RBAF Commander, Pehin Datu Pekerma Jaya Major General Dato Paduka Seri Mohd Tawih Abdullah, handed over the completed greenhouse by unveiling a plaque to commemorate the charity project.
Accompanied by defence and government officials, the commander then toured the greenhouse as the students and trainers put their green thumbs to use.
He also presented certificates of appreciation to Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports senior special duties officer Hj Amer Hamzah Pehin Orang Kaya Amar Pahlawan Dato Seri Setia Hj Zakaria and Systematic Engineering Sdn Bhd representative Lim Teik Jin.
Titian Amal is an annual charity project organised by RBAF in conjunction with its upcoming 54th anniversary on May 31.
