Batu Bara (31/8) - PT Indonesia Asahan Aluminium (Persero) or INALUM again shows its concern in preventing the spread of COVID-19. This prevention is carried out by INALUM through outreach to the public regarding the adaptation of new habits in the midst of the COVID-19 epidemic. The socialization activity for the adaptation of this new habit was carried out in 36 villages in Batu Bara Regency at the same time by distributing 1,300 Pcs of masks and 1,300 Pcs of Hand Sanitizers. In addition, INALUM has also installed billboards at 52 location points that advise the public to use masks, keep their distance, wash their hands diligently, and drink more water and vitamin C to prevent exposure to COVID-19.
Ismail Midi, as the Head of INALUM's CSR Department, revealed that the purpose of this socialization was to be carried out. "This socialization is INALUM's effort to support the adaptation of new habits urged by the Government of the Republic of Indonesia. This socialization is carried out to the community around INALUM's Smelting Factory and PLTA while still following social restriction protocols to prevent the spread of COVID-19," said Ismail.
Furthermore, INALUM Deputy Corporate Secretary Mahyaruddin AR explained his hopes regarding this outreach. "In facing this COVID-19 pandemic, we all must be able to protect ourselves so as not to catch the COVID-19 outbreak. The hope is that with this socialization, all communities around the company will be able to follow the government's advice to be able to implement and adapt new life habits, namely using masks, diligently washing hands and keeping a distance from other people, "said Mahyaruddin.
One of the community representatives, Juliadi, as the Head of Lubuk Cuik Village, expressed his appreciation for INALUM for implementing this socialization. "Indeed, currently the government has adopted new habitual adaptations in dealing with COVID-19, but there are still many ordinary people who don't know about this. Therefore, with the socialization and installation of suggested billboards to undergo the adaptation of new habits from INALUM, it really helps the community to understand and understand more about the importance of implementing this new habit adaptation, especially the people in Lubuk Cuik Village. Thank you INALUM for the socialization and provision of masks and hands-on aid, I hope INALUM will always be victorious, ”said Juliadi.
