9 April, 2020
Donated 1,000 units of PPE in the effort of #WithWulingAgainstCorona
Jakarta, 9 April 2020 – As a form of a joint synergy to fight against the spread of corona virus in Indonesia, Wuling Motors (Wuling) through its corporate social responsibility program, #WithWulingAgainstCorona, donated 1,000 units of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) today at the Indonesian Medical Association Headquarter, Jakarta. The donation was given symbolically by Bambang Sumitro as Human Resources Director Wuling Motors to the President of Indonesian Medical Association, Dr. Daeng M Faqih, SH, MH.
“We really appreciate all of the medical workers who have been working hard up until now as the front liners in fighting against corona virus in Indonesia. The supports we give are the tangible form of Wuling’s responsibility and commitment in Indonesia which are driven by the spirit of ‘Drive For A Better Life’ that we always stand firmly. We hope that this donation could help all the medical workers to always use personal protection equipment when they are in duty to protect their health,” said Bambang Sumitro.
Amid this pandemic, medical teams lack of PPE, which is vital for their health and safety when they treat patients who are infected by the virus. In this regard, Wuling is moved to take part to protect medical workers who are fighting tirelessly by donating PPE to the Indonesian Medical Association. Wuling gives 1000 units of PPE, which consist of hazmat coverall, goggles, gloves, and boots. With this donation from Wuling, the Indonesian Medical Association will distribute the donation for all medical workers in Indonesia.
The President of Indonesian Medical Association, Dr. Daeng M Faqih, SH, MH, welcomed this initiative from Wuling positively. “Currently, there are lots of medical workers in Indonesia who are lacking PPE therefore the risk of contagion of the corona virus is increased on them. In addition to the government’s aids, supports from several parties need to be built up. Therefore, we appreciate Wuling’s step to fight against corona virus in Indonesia through this #WithWulingAgainstCorona program.”
Moreover, Bambang Sumitro added, “Let’s all unite to give support to the government and public in facing this difficult time so that Indonesia will rise up and recover soon.”
