IO, Jakarta – The Jakarta CSR Forum supports the efforts of the Jakarta Provincial Government in preventing the spread of Covid-19 in the Capital City by involving partners from the business world. Through the Jakarta CSR Forum, one of the partners involved, Danone Indonesia, handed over personal protective equipment in the form of 5,000 pcs of masks, along with 60,000 bottles of mineral water for medical workers, patients, and people affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and 10-facility sterilization, at the Jakarta City Hall, on Friday (4/3/2020). 

Jakarta Provincial Secretariat Assistant for Economy and Finance Sri Haryati received them at City Hall, and declared cooperation was needed because not all problems in Jakarta could be resolved by the Regional Government, but instead needed the support of community members. As directed by the Governor of Jakarta Province, Anies Baswedan, collaboration is a keyword, especially since Jakarta is now promoting the concept of City 4.0. 

“So, this is a form of good collaboration between the business world as stakeholders with the Jakarta Provincial Government. We extend great appreciation to Danone Indonesia regarding various efforts to control the Covid-19 pandemic carried out by the Jakarta Provincial Government. Of course, this assistance is also very useful for health workers in Jakarta,” Sri said. 

The Jakarta Provincial Government has presented the opportunity to work together to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic. Those who want to collaborate and provide support can directly work with the Jakarta CSR Forum as one of the strategic partners of the Jakarta Provincial Government. 

On this occasion, Chairperson of Jakarta CSR Forum Dr. Mahir Bayasut declared that this assistance was part of the commitment of the business community to support efforts to overcome the Covid-19 pandemic through cooperation with various parties throughout Indonesia. 

“Jakarta’s CSR Forum is carrying out various actions quickly and responsibly to be able to provide essential assistance for medical personnel, patients, and those who are vulnerable to the Covid-19 pandemic. We are also committed to supporting the government in controlling the spread of this pandemic with anything we can do,” said Mahir.
