Merauke – PT Papua Agro Lestari (PAL), a business division of Korindo Group, starting Wednesday (10/6), has been gradually distributing food aid in the form of 530 kg of rice and 27 boxes of instant noodles to 106 heads of families living around the company’s operational area in Ulilin District, Merauke Regency, Papua.
This real action from the company is a form of concern towards the community who has been experiencing constraint in business activities and economy due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The company’s concern was well-welcomed by the community. Their gratitude to the company was delivered in person by the Clan Chief of Koula.
“Thank you to PT PAL for their concern towards the community. We feel truly helped especially during the COVID-19 pandemic like this, which caused our activities being reduced as well as our income. To us, this donation truly matters,” Richard said.
In this donation distribution process, the company visited people’s homes directly and even came to befak or tents in the middle of forest where people look for food and protect themselves from the COVID-19 pandemic in order to avoid the crowd.
“By visiting people’s homes directly even in the middle of forest, the closeness of our hearts with the people will always be there. Hopefully, this donation will be beneficial to support people’s needs for food,” said the General Manager of PT PAL, Zozang Park during the aid distribution yesterday (10/6). (*)
