The Thousand Islands Regency has received social aid in the form of 2,000 packages of staple food from the Food of Indonesia (FOI).
" Hopefully it can help those in need to mitigate the hardship of the COVID-19 pandemic"
Thousand Islands UKT I Chairperson Ade Slamet said the aid consisted of rice, soy sauce, sardines and fruit juice. It was dedicated to elderly people, orphans and disabled people, as well as people who undergo a 14-day self-isolation at their homes.
"Thank you for the aid anyway," he expressed, Friday (6/26).
He explained the aid distribution to residential islands in two sub-districts would be done after other contributions arrived in order to save transportation and fuel.
"We'll distribute it soon. Hopefully it can help those in need to mitigate the hardship of the COVID-19 pandemic," he hoped.
