Indosat Ooredoo Mobile Clinic has distributed Aid to communities affected by floods in several cities in Indonesia.
The recent extreme weather that occurred has caused flooding in several regions in Indonesia. Many of the people affected by the floods temporarily live their daily lives in several refugee camps.
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic where people become severely limited, those impacted by the disaster must receive more attention to alleviate their suffering. Cooperation from all parties will be highly beneficial for them during the recovery and post-disaster period.
Indosat Ooredoo‘s continuous commitment to be present in the community affected by disasters in Indonesia is implemented through the operation of Mobile Clinics. The flooding that occurred in Semarang, Karawang, Pekalongan, Indramayu, and also Jakarta, has moved Indosat Ooredoo to immediately deploy Mobile Clinics to evacuation points to help the impacted community.
Director & Chief Operating Officer of Indosat Ooredoo, Vikram Sinha, uttered, “Since the beginning of the disaster began to occur in several areas in Indonesia, we immediately deployed the Mobile Clinic to help people in need of evacuation and assistance. We demonstrate our social responsibility to the Indonesian society by providing free health services and provision of daily necessities, and these actions aim to alleviate the suffering of those who are affected. We hope that the condition will improve soon, so their lives can run normally again.”
Since 2007, Indosat Ooredoo’s Mobile Clinic has contributed to improve the health of the Indonesian society, including delivering aids during difficult post-disaster times such as the recent earthquake in West Sulawesi, floods in South Kalimantan, and the eruption of Mount Semeru and Merapi. For people affected by flooding in several regions in Indonesia at this moment, Mobile Clinics also provide free medical assistance and distribute ready-to-eat meals and tools to address telecommunications needs at several evacuation points.
Throughout 2020, Indosat Ooredoo has provided assistance to 18,979 individuals affected by disasters throughout Indonesia.
