Jakarta, July 21, 2021 – The celebration of Eid al-Adha 1442 H which falls on July 20, 2021 is felt differently, because the Covid-19 pandemic is still hitting. TIKI together with JNE continue to make Eid al-Adha a moment to strengthen friendship and share the spirit of sharing with employees and the community around the Tuna Netra Orphanage Foundation and Jami Soeprapto Soeparno Mosque, Jakarta. Titled #TIKIJNEIdulAdhaBareng, TIKI and JNE prepared 40 cows and 22 goats to be sacrificed and the meat was distributed to around 4,000 people following health protocols and regulations from the local government.
The slaughter of sacrificial animals was carried out at the Tapos Slaughterhouse (RPH) Jalan Tapos Raya, Tapos, Depok, West Java, and the distribution was carried out in several locations, including the Jami Soeprapto Soeparno Mosque, Al Makmur Cikini Mosque, Dadap, Slipi Mosque, M1 Airport Warehouse. Soetta, Puri Kembangan Warehouse, Veterans Hub, Poglar Hub, Garuda Hub, Sunter Hub, Pulo Gadung Hub, Pedati Hub, Cimanggis Warehouse and also in collaboration with the Polsek spread across 22 locations in the DKI Jakarta area. The slaughtering of the qurban was witnessed only by representatives of the two managements because it was still during the Covid-19 Pandemic and government policies related to PPKM (Enforcement of Restrictions on Community Activities).
Ahmad Ferwito, TIKI’s Director of Operations & Networks said, “We are grateful that even amid the implementation of the Emergency PPKM, TIKI still continues to fulfill our social obligations at this year’s Eid al-Adha celebration. Not only sacrificial animals, this year’s Eid al-Adha also shares more with orphans, visually impaired and widowed mothers through donations and school supplies. The hope is that it can help ease their burden in a situation like this. Of course we pray that this pandemic situation can be passed soon and the economic condition of the community can gradually improve.”
M. Feriadi Soeprapto, President Director of JNE said, “The implementation of #TIKIJNEIdulAdhaBareng is a proof of JNE and TIKI’s commitment to share with others in any condition and situation as taught by the founders of the two companies, namely the late. Mr. Soeprapto Soeparno.With the spirit of sacrifice and prayers from the entire community, we all hope that this pandemic condition will end soon and gather again to celebrate Eid al-Adha in better conditions."
