Detiktoday.com – Banteng Muda Indonesia (BMI) of West Java went directly to the community to distribute hundreds of food packages.
West Java BMI Chairman Ineu Purwadewi said the social service was a series of commemoration of Bung Karno’s Month. The location in Kampung Leuwi Bandung was chosen because this place is one of the subscriptions of the Bandung Regency flood due to the overflow of the Citarum River.
“Actually, since the Covid-19 pandemic we routinely hold social services. This time we are specifically holding this as the peak celebration of Bung Karno Month. “We are distributing food assistance to people affected by Covid-19, especially those who have not received assistance from the government,” Ineu told reporters.
Ineu said more activities were carried out by distributing hundreds of food packages on a door-to-door basis to residents’ homes to avoid crowds. “We only deliver because to avoid physical distancing by keeping a distance,” she said.
According to Ineu, his party held social services in all regencies / cities in West Java where the management of West Java BMI is located. Its activities are as varied as the BMI Cirebon District which distributes regional protective equipment (PPE) to puskesmas. Including the BMI of the city of Bandung, they also distributed hand sanitizers and masks to the community.
“What can be done by friends in the area is adjusted to their abilities. Of course we also support, “added Ineu, who also served as Deputy Chairman of the People’s Representative Council of West Java from the PDI-P faction.
On that occasion, his party also appealed to the community to help the government in order to deal with adaptation of new habits. At a minimum by staying disciplined in implementing health protocols such as wearing masks when traveling outside the house, diligently washing hands and keeping a distance.
West Java BMI deputy secretary Nanang Parhan added that previously the Bandung Regency BMI had been actively helping the community in the handling of the Covid-19 pandemic by distributing groceries and PPE.
