ICECRD ACTIVITIES – Until now, the development of the Covid-19 Pandemic is still worrying and requires the attention of all parties to prevent its spread and widespread impact. In response to this, the Minister of Agriculture designed an operational emergency program to reduce the impact, especially on the poor, which is very disturbing to survival. For this reason, the Ministry of Agriculture responds to the current pandemic situation and encourages all parties within the Ministry of Agriculture to take a role through caring activities.
Based on the results of the leadership meeting of all echelon 1-2 officials of the Ministry of Agriculture, on July 29, 2021. The Minister of Agriculture has assigned each UK/UPT to form a task force to handle the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, one of which is through the distribution of consumption assistance to affected communities.
The implementation of the Minister of Agriculture’s directive is in the form of ready-to-eat food and/or basic necessities in the form of an action to care for the ICECRD. The action plan will be rolled out for 2 months or 60 days or a total of 3,000 packs with a total distribution of 50 people per day by each UK/UPT, including the ICECRD.
To make this program a success, the Head of the ICECRD, Ir. Syafaruddin, Ph.D invites employees to contribute to donate sincerely. This was conveyed during the morning apple (2/8/2021). The Kapus also expressed his appreciation and gratitude to the employees who had responded quickly to the Minister of Agriculture’s directive, namely by voluntarily providing ready-to-eat food packages.
“This is a form of our sympathy and concern. Thank you, so many people have responded and volunteered to provide assistance. Even if later for 2 months the donations collected are excessive, we will give them all. Hopefully it can ease the burden on our brothers and sisters affected by Covid-19,” said Him.
In addition, the Kapus also emphasized to the task force to immediately work in an effort to collect as much aid as possible and immediately design an action program for the next 2 months in coordination with the relevant UK/UPT, so that activities run according to targets and have a positive impact on the affected communities. .
In his directive, the Head of ICECRD also reminded that along with the 76th Indonesian Independence Day, all employees should display the red and white flag at their respective homes from August 1-31 2021. Glory to my Nation, Prosper to my Country. (Anjas)
