JAKARTA – Korindo Foundation held another Charity Week this Ramadan. In this Corporate Social Contribution program activity, the Foundation channelled basic necessities to vulnerable communities such as the poor, orphans, and stunted toddlers within the Pancoran Subdistrict area in South Jakarta.
The donation, which contained staple food items, toiletries, and supplementary food, was presented on the subdistrict office patio Thursday (04/13). Subdistrict head Alamsah invited all attending beneficiaries to express their gratitude and pray for Korindo’s success.
“On behalf of the subdistrict government, I would like to thank the Korindo Foundation for the gifts and staple food kits. We’re glad and grateful. I also hope to see more donations like these in the future.”
Korindo Foundation’s General Secretary Seo Jeongsik also revealed how “glad and grateful” they were to be able to share happiness with the people again through Charity Week. “We hope these all-important, nutritious food packets can help everyone get through the days up until Eid,” he added.
Seo Jeongsik handed over the foodstuff to a Rawajati local, M. Irfan Fadilah, in a symbolic ceremony. (Rawajati is an urban village in Pancoran.) Fadilah said, “It’s a pleasure to have accepted this donation… this is my third time receiving help from the Korindo Foundation.”
At this year’s event, the Foundation distributed 90 staple food kits and 10 “nutrient-boosting” bags for toddlers. Every kit was made up of 5 kg of rice, 2 kg of granulated sugar, 2 liters of cooking oil, and some tea packets. Meanwhile, the bags consisted of 5 kg of rice, 2 kg of granulated sugar, 1 liter of UHT milk, and biscuits each. (PR)
