Bandar Seri Begawan, 15th November 2011 – Thirteen patients from the RIPAS Paediatric Haemoto-Oncology Centre accompanied by their parents were taken to Toys R Us today as part of Baiduri Bank's CSR program. The purpose of the visit was to provide the children the opportunity to pick toys for the Centre.


Mr Pierre Imhof, General Manager; Mr Ti Eng Hui, Deputy General Manager, Retail Banking and Branch Network  and senior managers of Baiduri Bank were on hand to greet and welcome the patients in Toys R Us. Also present were Ms. Tsaranawwarah Abdullah Chen, Senior Occupational Therapist and Dk. Nurul, Occupational Therapist from the Centre.

Mr Imhof commented "To see the children with smiling faces during the visit to Toys R Us really warms my heart. It is our duty as a local bank of Brunei Darussalam and a human being to make it easier and memorable for them.  At Baiduri, we are thankful that we have this opportunity to help those in need."

Baiduri Bank has worked closely with RIPAS Hospital throughout the years. Besides being a major sponsor of the Annual Blood Donor Day, Baiduri Bank has helped finance the development of various areas within RIPAS. In 2008, the Bank donated B$27,000 to the Child Development Centre, RIPAS Hospital for the set up of the sensory integration and audio visual rooms, books for feeding clinic, wheelchairs, commodes, chest walkers and stroller buggies.  In 2009, Baiduri Bank donated B$8,200 to help cover the cost of educational aid at the Pediatric Occupational Therapy In-Patient Service Unit while in 2010, B$7,500 was donated to the Child Development Centre, RIPAS Hospital.

This morning's activity is part of the B$15,000 pledged in July this year to RIPAS Hospital for the new Paediatric Haemoto-Oncology Centre. The money is to help furnish the Centre equipment, books and toys for the patients.

The Centre was established to attend to children with blood disorders and with cancer. The Centre consists of 4 rooms and the ward bay which can accommodate 5-6 patients. At present there are 77 patients diagnosed with cancer since 2002.
