July, 2021 – The Covid-19 pandemic in Indonesia has not over yet and impacted various social life aspects. The recent highest concern is related to health facilities which have continuously experienced the decreasing capacity due to the higher number of patients infected by the corona virus each day. One of the most required in all health facilities is oxygen in which the availability is now very limited. Therefore, JNE then collaborated with Dompet Kemanusiaan Media Group (DKMG) by sending 370 oxygen cylinders for free to the Covid-19 patients treated at the 14 Covid-19 Emergency Hospitals in Jakarta, Bandung, Semarang, Kebumen, and Yogyakarta.
On Saturday morning (24/7), the oxygen cylinders were directly distributed to Dr. Kariadi Provincial Public Hospital (known as RSUP Kariadi), Semarang. 50 large-size oxygen cylinders, hundreds of vitamin packages, and personal protective equipment (PPE) were distributed to meet the hospital’s needs. The assistance was directly received by the representative of RSUP Kariadi Semarang, drg. Yuniarti Rahayu, Sp.KG, MARS as the Director of Planning, Organization, and General Affairs of RSUP Kariadi Semarang. The representatives of Media Group Foundation and Benihbaik.com, Viktor Yasadhana as well as JNE representative, Said Budi Nugroho, as JNE Semarang Sales Coordinator were also present at the event.
Wahyu Sangerti Alam, Head of JNE Semarang Branch, said that this activity is a form of gratitude made by JNE after delivering the customers’ mandate to deliver packages for 3 decades. Beside as a form of corporate social responsibility in helping public and hospitals struggling in handling the Covid-19, “JNE has still committed to always share the goodness by collaborating with various parties. It is expected that this program will provide maximum benefits to the public and ease the government’s burden in accelerating the handling of Covid-19 pandemic.”
drg. Yuniarti Rahayu, Sp.KG, MARS as the Director of Planning, Organization, and General Affairs of RSUP Kariadi Semarang expressed her gratitude for other parties’ awareness and attention to RSUP Kariadi Semarang. “The donation of oxygen cylinders to our hospital means a lot, especially due to these recent extraordinary conditions and scarcity of oxygen cylinders. Thank God. Media Group, Benihbaik, Toyota, and JNE have supported and sent their assistance. Hopefully the assistance can save many people.” She added that the support from various parties is absolutely meaningful for both patients and health workers. If the infrastructure is adequate, the health workers can focus more on handling the patients.
The collaboration between JNE and various parties is a strategic way to be continuously realized in accordance with the spirit of "Connecting Happiness" by delivering happiness to those in needs in the remote areas throughout the country by sharing, loving and caring for others. The activity programs and collaborations that we have initiated can continuously support various positive activities, such as raising donations, sending aids and others for free. These real efforts are made to help ease the government’s burden and move the national economic wheels during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Previously, to support the government programs in handling the Covid-19 Pandemic, JNE has also prepared 7,500 vaccines for employees in Jabodetabek and the surrounding people.
