This PJM programme is aligned with the Fifth Pillar of the 28th Chief of the Malaysian Army Superior Order, namely "Improving Army and Civil Relations", and is in line with the keyword of the 8th Brigade Commander Superior Command, which emphasises cooperation between the military and the people. Also, this initiative provides opportunities for the military to continuously contribute to the community.
