Jakarta, MINA – Repower Asia Indonesia Tbk is channeling aid for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) along with other equipment to the DKI Jakarta Provincial Government. The assistance is channeled through humanitarian agency, Medical Emergency Rescue – Committee (MER-C).
The handover was carried out at DKI Jakarta City Hall on Tuesday and was received directly by DKI Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan.

Repower Asia Indonesia’s Chief Commissioner, Ichsan Thalib said the assistance with a total amount of Rp.1 billion would be carried out in stages.
“For the first phase, 200 PPE packages are distributed. Later a minimum of up to 1,000 packages. The assistance was prepared within the last 1-2 months, “Ichsan told MINA after the handover.
He explained that assistance was needed because the pandemic still ongoing and could not be predicted when it would end. Moreover, the need for quality PPE is quite difficult to obtain.
