The Jakarta Provincial Government together with Jakarta Baznas Bazis, PMI and Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) Foundation, signed a cooperation agreement on the implementation of large-scale social collaboration (KSBB) in Jakarta, on Wednesday (4/22).
" We are grateful for this good collaboration"
KSBB itself is a movement to help others who need food aid during Ramadan amid COVID-19 pandemic. The beneficiaries of this program include underprivileged people, kids in orphanages and boarding schools, the elderly in nursing homes and other social institutions.
West Jakarta Mayor Rustam Effendi said that the KSBB program was very beneficial for the people affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, especially for people who will soon undergo Ramadan.
"We are grateful for this good collaboration. Hopefully it can help our communities affected by COVID-19," he stated, after he signed the agreement about KSBB, at the City Hall.
Technically the aid would be given directly by Baznas Bazis and PMI to the needy. While the staff was tasked with monitoring the process of distributing aid to make it right on target.
"I'll also tell which regions will be given aid," he continued.
At the same time, Jakarta Baznas Bazis Chairman Luthfi Fathullah expressed, along with PMI, his side would collect funds to provide aid in the form of food during Ramadan.
"They (city government) will provide the data. So those who want to contribute can see which areas have not been given aid to avoid stacking at one point," he explained.
It aimed to improve community resilience, especially the needy during Ramadan, provide data on aid targets on the basis of the RW area, provide opportunities for residents who need help from others and provide information on collaboration implemented in each location.
It should also meet the principles of simplicity and clarity; efficiency and effectiveness; measurability; dynamic; transparency; right on target: co mmunity-oriented and compliance in the implementation of PSBB.
So, for companies that want to provide support, they may open the website at corona.jakarta.go.id, thus the aid providers and recipients can be interconnected.
