July, 2021 – The Covid-19 pandemic in Indonesia is still not over and the impact it has had so far has had a major impact on various aspects of life in society. The highest concern is that health facilities are reducing their capacity because of the high number of virus transmissions per day. One of the most needed in all health facilities is oxygen, which is now very limited availability. Seeing this condition, JNE collaborated with Dompet Kehumanan Media Group (DKMG) to send 370 oxygen cylinders for free to Covid-19 patients being treated at 14 Covid Emergency Hospitals in Jakarta, Bandung, Semarang, Kebumen and Yogyakarta.
On Thursday night (22/7), oxygen cylinders were distributed directly to the Bandung City Hospital, which is the 5th city to receive free oxygen cylinders. A total of 50 large oxygen cylinders, along with hundreds of vitamin packages and personal protective equipment (PPE) were given to meet the needs at the Bandung City government hospital. Also present were representatives of the Media Group Foundation and Benihbaik.com, Sugiharto and JNE representative Benny Nugraha as the Chair of the Covid-19 JNE Bandung Task Force.
Iyus Rustandi, Head of JNE Bandung Branch, said that this activity is gratitude for JNE for delivering the mandate of customer packages for 3 decades. In addition, it is also a form of corporate social responsibility in helping the community and hospitals who are struggling in handling Covid-19. “JNE remains committed to always sharing in goodness by collaborating with various parties. It is hoped that this program will provide the maximum benefit to the community and can ease the burden on the government in accelerating the handling of the Covid-19 pandemic.”
Ade Hafil, Head of the Maintenance and Maintenance Section of the Bandung City Hospital, said “Oxygen cylinder donations to our hospital are very meaningful, especially at the time of scarcity of oxygen gas cylinders, which are currently urgently needed. Thank God there is help from Media Group, Benihbaik, Toyota, and JNE, hopefully with this many people can be helped.” Ade confirmed that his party desperately needed oxygen reserves. Because, the existing stock can only meet the needs of the mini night only. “Alhamdulillah, this (oxygen) help can extend the time so that it will be longer,” he said. Ade said oxygen demand increased by 200% during the second wave of this pandemic.
JNE’s collaboration with various parties is a strategic collaboration that will continue to be realized in accordance with the spirit of “Connecting Happiness” which is to deliver happiness to remote areas of the country by sharing, loving and caring for others. The program of activities and collaborations that we have started can continue to support various positive activities, such as raising donations, sending free aid and others. This proper step is to help ease the burden on the government and can advance the national economy during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Previously, in order to support the government’s program to tackle the Covid-19 Pandemic, JNE also prepared 7,500 vaccines for employees in Greater Jakarta and the public. This free vaccination was held at the GOR Grogol Auditorium, West Jakarta, Jl. Dr. Nurdin IV Grogol Petamburan, Jakarta and Sedayu City Suites Parking floor P2 East Jakarta. Vaccination will take place on 8 -24 July 2021 (except 11 and 18 July 2021, the JNE vaccine center is closed). The JNE Vaccine Center was held in collaboration with the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Indonesia, the DKI Jakarta Provincial Health Office, Muhammadiyah Hospital, CEO Forum and Asperindo.
