December, 2019 - JNE cooperates with the National Amil Zakat Agency (BAZNAS) to distribute donations of 1,000 pairs of shoes worth IDR 240,000,000. The donation was given to children who were victims of disasters in Palu and Lombok, and also children who were less fortunate in terms of the economy in the Greater Jakarta area.
With the theme "Chasing the Future with JNE, 1,000 Shoes for Palu and Lombok Children", the donation event was held at the Baznas Office Jl. Johar No.18 Kebon Sirih, Menteng, Central Jakarta on Friday, 13th December 2019. Symbolically, JNE President Director Mohamad Feriadi handed over this donation directly to the Chairman of BAZNAS, Prof. Dr. Bambang Sudibyo, MBA, CA.
Bambang Sudibyo said that BAZNAS would consistently support efforts in helping the process of recovering the conditions of post-disaster communities. It is hoped that this collaboration with JNE can foster new enthusiasm for students to be more diligent in schooling for disadvantaged children in Jabodetabek.
"Thank you JNE, for entrusting BAZNAS with this very positive activity. This is in line with the commitment of BAZNAS as a zakat organization that will continue to strive to encourage children affected by natural disasters or disadvantaged to rise from adversity. Giving these shoes is one of the efforts to improve the quality of life of the students," he said.
Bambang added that this activity was expected to be an inspiration for other companies. "Any company can help the government in advancing the education of Indonesian students through assistance that can be channeled through BAZNAS. In fact, it does not stop only in the distribution of shoes, but also in other fields of cooperation, both in the health, social and religious fields," he explained.
Meanwhile, JNE President Director Mohamad Feriadi said that this activity was a form of JNE's gratitude in commemorating his 29th anniversary. It is also a form of corporate social responsibility in helping the community, especially post-disaster students in Palu and Lombok as well as poor students in Jabodetabek.
