ACTNews, MALANG – The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has affected people's lives in the economy, education, and health sector. Many ways have been done to overcome this impact. Many parties are involved in solving the Covid-19 pandemic together.
Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT), Bank Indonesia (BI), and Ikatan Pegawai Bank Indonesia (IPEBI) in Malang provided oxygen refill services for Covid-19 patients or those in need. This service was carried out in two places, namely ACT Malang Office on Jalan Ciliwung, Number 10, Purwantoro, Blimbing, and Samator Gas on Jalan Canal Yonkav, Randugembolo, Randuagung, Singosari.
Head of the BI Branch Malang Azka Subhan Aminurridho said the joint action with ACT was humanitarian aid in overcoming the impact of the pandemic. He hopes that the free oxygen filling service can bring benefits to people in need. “We have collaborated several times with ACT Malang. This service is an action to help the community,” he said.
To get free oxygen filling, residents can go directly to the filling location by bringing cylinders measuring one and six cubic meters. For residents exposed to Covid-19, they get six times filling quota by showing their identity and proof of being exposed to the virus. As for non-Covid-19 patients, they get a three times quota.
ACT, BI, and IPEBI have also conducted Free Meal Operations for underprivileged residents, daily workers, and self-isolating residents. The team will carry out this action for two weeks in five areas in Malang City. The team will deliver ready-to-eat meals directly to residents.
"We are collaborating with culinary MSMEs affected by the pandemic to provide ready-to-eat meals. Hence, this action can be beneficial for the community and MSME owners," explained Iqrok Wahyu Perdana, Branch Manager of ACT Malang.
