PRESS RELEASE

AMBD BREAST CANCER AWARENESS SHARING SESSION

 

  1. Autoriti Monetari Brunei Darussalam (AMBD), in collaboration with Pantai Jerudong Specialist Centre (PJSC) and Brunei Breast Cancer Support Group (BBCSG), recently, organised a sharing session on breast cancer for AMBD officers and staff.
     
  2. The objective of the session is to increase awareness on the subject through an explanation of the science behind breast cancer, preventative measures which can be practiced daily, and the importance of frequent self-examination and screening for early detection. The session also shared the experiences of survivors and caring for those diagnosed with breast cancer. The talks were conducted by YM Dr. Raden Mas Jeffri bin Raden Mas Ismail, Oncology Specialist from PJSC; YM Hajah Aminah binti Haji Momin @ Ratu Hajah Aminah binti Pangeran Hawa Haji Momin, President of the BBCSG; and YM Datin Hajah Dayang Jaliha binti Haji Momin @ Ratu Datin Hajah Dayang Jaliha binti Pangeran Hawa Haji Momin, Secretary of the BBCSG.
     
  3. Through this session, it is hoped that AMBD employees would foster a better sense of responsibility towards their health, and also support those who are, or have suffered, from breast cancer.
     
  4. The event concluded with a handover of donations collected through AMBD's Pinktober 2020 Donation Drive by YM Hajah Rokiah Binti Haji Badar, Managing Director of AMBD to the President of the BBCSG. The Pinktober 2020 Donation Drive was conducted internally amongst AMBD employees to contribute mastectomy bras and breast prosthetics for breast cancer survivors and patients.
