Parapat, Wednesday, April 8, 2020 – Regal Springs Indonesia (RSI), through its Sustainable Program KAMI PEDULI, is collaborating with the district governments in Toba, Samosir, Simalungun, and Serdang Bedagai to address the risks of COVID-19 in the local communities.
“Since we activated the Regal Springs Indonesia COVID-19 Risk Management Plan in February, we have also adjusted our Community Program KAMI PEDULI in collaboration with the district governments to implement awareness programs about COVID-19,” said Dian Octavia, Community Affairs Senior Manager, on Wednesday (4/8) in Parapat, North Sumatra. “The health and safety of the surrounding community are just as important as the health and safety of our employees. Therefore, our efforts are not limited to company facilities but also extend to the local community,” said Dian.
Activities carried out in collaboration with local health departments include the distribution of hand soap, disinfectants, handwashing stations, and educational materials. “We have met with the Regent of Serdang Bedagai and the Regent of Toba to coordinate the planned efforts for COVID-19 risk management. We are currently procuring face masks, personal protective equipment for healthcare workers, and handheld thermometers to donate to these district governments,” said Dian.
Regal Springs Indonesia operates responsible Tilapia cultivation and processing facilities in North Sumatra and Central Java. “The company has also conducted disinfection spraying in villages surrounding our facilities and installed banners and posters on notice boards,” added Dian.
