"This is a concrete manifestation of the company's concern to support the regional government's program in helping people who need basic food in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, especially in the month of Ramadhan," said Head PT SDOPLR Hamdi Abdul Karim, Thursday.
"This assistance may not be able to reach the wider people, due to the limited production of ALIF that has just been launched. However, we are pleased to be able to contribute to helping people in need,” he added.
