This morning, PWM excos led by Mr. James Lee (PWM President) and Datuk Hj Ag Sahak Hj Ag Salleh (Malaysian High Commissioner to Brunei Darussalam) presented a cheque of B$10,500-00 to Pehin Orang Kaya Pekerma Laila Diraja Dato Seri Setia Awang Haji Hazair bin Haji Abdullah, the Minister of Culture, Youth & Sports, who received the cheque on behalf of MFDHF.
