Giving aid to flood victims
The Henkel team in Indonesia helped flood victims by collecting basic goods for care packages.
Jakarta was hit with its worst flooding in years as torrential rains in the country took its toll on the capital in January. Several thousands were displaced from their homes and one of the worst-hit areas was Tangerang.
The Henkel team based in Tangerang, Indonesia, quickly mobilized their resources to collect basic goods and amenities for the victims in the isolated village of Desa Cirumpak. In five days, Budiarto Suryadi, Plant Manager for Henkel Footwear, and his team managed to gather 500 packages for the villagers consisting of food, clothes, shoes and stationery.
“In addition, 140 Henkel T-Shirts and more than a thousand Syoss shampoo sachets were collected from the Marketing Department to be included in the care packages. We are very grateful for the positive support from our colleagues,” said Budiarto.
