JD.ID Provides Free Meals to Hospital in Jakarta
by Martin Li
JD.ID, the e-commerce joint venture of JD.com in Indonesia, is supporting a local initiative, Food Against Corona, to provide free meals to a hospital in Indonesia which is treating patients with COVID-19.
Under the initiative, 300 free meals are delivered daily to Wisma Atlet Kemayoran, a former athlete village in central Jakarta that has been converted into an emergency hospital to treat people with COVID-19. The meals include a balanced combination of vegetables and fruits, which the company hopes can enhance nutrition and immunity level of doctors at the hospital.
The program was launched last week and will last one month. The company will also consider extending the supply of free meals based on the development of the epidemic situation.
The food donation is one of the latest efforts by JD.ID to support fight the virus. More ongoing virus-fighting efforts can be seen at : https://jdcorporateblog.com/jd-com-provides-aid-to-fight-covid-19-in-south-east-asia/.
