Regal Springs Indonesia Partners with Integrated Health Service Posts (Posyandu) to Provide 1,800 Supplementary Food Packages for Toddlers and Pregnant Women

Regal Springs Indonesia continues its Sustainability and Social Responsibility Program, KAMI PEDULI, by announcing another program under the initiative of KAMI PEDULI Against COVID-19. This involves a partnership with Integrated Health Service Posts (Posyandu) in the villages surrounding the fisheries aquaculture operations in Danau Toba and Samosir Regencies, as well as the processing plant in Serdang Bedagai Regency, North Sumatra.

Under the supervision of the local Health Department, Regal Springs Indonesia is providing nearly 1,800 Supplementary Food Packages for toddlers and pregnant women starting this week in Simanindo Subdistrict, Samosir Regency, and Ajibata Subdistrict, Toba Regency. “Despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are delighted to contribute to this important health program to support the local community and assist the Government in maintaining good nutrition for toddlers and pregnant women during these difficult times,” said David Tampubolon, Head of Corporate Affairs at Regal Springs Indonesia.

“This is also in line with our plans to align the KAMI PEDULI Sustainability Program with UN Sustainable Development Goal 3: Good Health and Well-being, and two corporate teams are involved in this matter,” added Tampubolon.

In Toba and Samosir Regencies, green bean porridge and boiled duck eggs are provided to 1,000 pregnant women and toddlers. “We hope that this monthly program can help improve the nutritional and health conditions of children and pregnant women in this region, especially during this pandemic,” said Kasan Mulyono, Senior Manager of Corporate Affairs & Communications overseeing the project in the Danau Toba area. In Serdang Bedagai Regency, green bean porridge, vegetables, eggs, and vitamins are given to nearly 800 toddlers and pregnant women.

“We are delighted to support the Indonesian government’s health program to prevent stunting in children under five years old and to prevent mothers from giving birth to underweight babies,” said Dian Octavia, Senior Manager of Corporate & Community Affairs, who is responsible for the Medan Processing Business Unit.

“The local community will benefit from this health program as it helps improve the nutritional adequacy and immune system of pregnant women and toddlers,” said Dian.

Under the KAMI PEDULI Health Program & Community Support, Regal Springs Indonesia also collaborates with local health centers in the COVID-19 risk management program.

Regal Springs Indonesia operates responsible and certified Tilapia Fish Farming and Processing in North Sumatra and employs 2,300 employees.
