PT Servo Lintas Raya (SLR) and PT Swarnadwipa Dermaga Jaya (SDJ), companies engaged in the coal sector belonging to the Titan Group, distributed aid to flood victims that hit several villages in three districts within the province of South Sumatra.
The distribution of aid was sent directly to flood control posts in each district. The regencies whose areas were affected by the floods were Lahat, Muara Enim and PALI Regencies.
The flooding itself occurred due to the overflow of the Lematang River which was unable to accommodate the rain, where two weeks ago the rainfall was quite high. The assistance was handed over through the local government of each district in the form of basic food packages.
Like the distribution of aid in the PALI district, PT SLR and PT SDJ handed over assistance through the Head of Tanah Abang Sub-District, Edy Wirawan yesterday, Tuesday 14 March 2023 at the flood control post.
“This assistance is a form of the company’s concern in easing the burden on the flood victims in three districts in South Sumatra province,” said Syahrul, Titan Group Public Relations, Wednesday (15/3/2023).
As explained by Syahrul, the distribution of aid in the three districts was directly sent to flood control posts in each district.
“We will distribute them to flood posts. One of them is in the Tanah Abang sub-district, which the sub-district head received to distribute to the flood victims,” he said.
Syahrul said the form of assistance was in the form of 2 tons of rice, 80 boxes of instant noodles, 100 boxes of mineral water and 400 cans of packaged fish.
“Our hope is to ease the burden on the flood victims, because during the floods, people’s activities are hampered. And we pray that the water will recede quickly so that this disaster will pass quickly,” he hoped.
