The fund, managed by the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports (MCYS) of Brunei, was initiated by the government of Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah. The walkathon reflected the Sultanate’s steadfast support for the Palestinian cause.

Pengiran Mohd Amirrizal bin Pengiran Haji Mahmud, the Permanent Secretary (Sports) at MCYS, was the guest of honour at the event. He joined the 1.2-kilometer walk around the Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Mosque, a symbol of Brunei’s culture and heritage.

Haji Abu Bakar bin Haji Mohd Don, the president of Wargamas Association, emphasized the event’s objective to support the Palestinians in Gaza. The walkathon raised BND1,432, which added to the BND2,240 that the Wargamas Association had already donated to the fund. The event also attracted members of the diplomatic corps, who expressed their international solidarity and support.
