BAIDURI BANK BRINGS CHEER TO RIPAS PAEDIATRIC HAEMOTO-ONCOLOGY WARD
11th April 2013

Bandar Seri Begawan, 11th April 2013.  – At a small intimate event at the Ward 3, where the Paediatric Haemoto-Oncology Ward is in RIPAS Hospital, Baiduri Bank recently donated 4 units of iPad Minis, 2 units of recliner wheelchairs and 1 unit of ripple mattress to a couple of excited children from Yayasan Kanak-Kanak Kanser (YASKA) for the use of the children undergoing treatment in the ward.

Present at the event was Andrew Young, DGM Operations, Baiduri Bank, Zubaidah Hj Dahlan, Assistant Director of Finance in RIPAS Hospital, Dr Hjh Norehan Hj Johari, Pediatric Oncologist, and Tsaranawwarah Abdullah Chen, Senior Occupational Therapist.

The Paediatric Haemoto-Oncology Ward was established to attend to children with blood disorders and those diagnosed with cancer. It consists of four rooms and the ward bay can accommodate five or six patients at a time. With the average length of treatment for childhood cancer, from initial diagnosis to cure or remission being one to two years, Baiduri hopes that with the donation made it can make the patients' stay at the ward whilst undergoing treatment more bearable.

To date, 100 children have been diagnosed with cancer in Brunei since 2002.

Baiduri Bank has worked closely with the RIPAS Hospital throughout the years. Besides being a major sponsor of the annual World Blood Donor Day, the Bank has helped finance the development of other areas within the RIPAS Hospital such as the Child Development Centre.

Since 2008, the bank has made significant donations to the Child Development Centre, RIPAS Hospital that enabled the setting up of the sensory integration, audio visual rooms, books, equipment and most recently to fund the Early Bird programme designated for parents whose three to five-year-old children were suffering from autism.

The Bank also made donations to help cover the cost of educational aid at the Paediatric Occupational Therapy In-Patient Service Unit.
