After 22 years of establishment, BGC celebrated its anniversary with an annual mass Maghrib and Isyak prayer at the Masjid Al-Ameerah Al-Hajjah Maryam in Kampong Jerudong on March 11, 2020.
Leading the event was BGC’s Deputy Managing Director, Pg Shamhary bin Pg Dato Paduka Haji Mustapha, with members of BGC staff in attendance to join the celebration.
Also, in attendance were external stakeholders from various government sectors, grassroot leaders, representatives from Brunei Shell Joint Venture Companies (BSJV) and members of the Jerudong community.
The event began with a mass Maghrib prayer followed by a Doa Kesyukuran led by BGC’s Employee Relations Advisor, Asril Amin bin Ahmad. The event ended with a mass Isyak prayer.
This year, the celebration was toned down as at the time of the event, Brunei had just recorded its initial cases of COVID-19. As a responsible company, BGC put in place physical distancing and other measures to ensure the safety of all guests and congregants to the mosque.
Goodie bags made up of packed food and drinks were handed out to all those present as a thank you from the company.
