The Adaro Group is among the first private companies which provided significant support to the COVID-19 mitigation and handling efforts in Indonesia, immediately after the President of Indonesia announced the first case on March 2nd, 2020. By donating a total of Rp20 billion to the National Agency for Disaster Management (BNPB) as the COVID-19 Handling Task Force in Indonesia, the Adaro Group gave support to the medical workers at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19, which included making available the ambulance for handling COVID-19 patients on site. The “Adaro Berjuang untuk Indonesia” program was then launched to inspire other business participants to contribute to the country. In this program, the Adaro Group collaborated with many parties to help fulfil emergency needs such as masks and protective clothing for the medical workers. The company believed that Indonesia’s internal resources would be capable of fulfilling the requirements for handling COVID-19 so that it collaborated with the University of Indonesia and local medical equipment producers to make portable ventilators necessary for emergency handling of COVID-19. A total of 100 ventilators amounting to Rp2,6 billion were then distributed across Indonesia.
The Adaro Group’s operational areas in South Kalimantan and Central Kalimantan were put as the prioritized beneficiaries of the aids, considering that these areas had limited health equipment and supplies for COVID-19 handling.
Overall, in 2020, the Adaro Group spent Rp57 billion in donation.
