Ternate, October 5, 2023 - Sustainable integrated mining and downstream company PT Trimegah Bangun Persada Tbk (NCKL) or Harita Nickel officially handed over an ambulance to Khairun State University (Unkhair) in Ternate to help improve and accelerate public health services in the surrounding community. The handover ceremony took place in the courtyard of the Unkhair campus on Thursday (23/05/10) and was presented by the Head of Community Affairs at Harita Nickel, Latif Supriadi, to the Rector of Unkhair, Dr. M. Ridha Ajam, M.Hum.
After handing over the ambulance, Harita Nickel's Head of Community Affairs, Latif Supriadi, stated that this aid was handed over to Unkhair as a form of the company's concern to fulfill Harita Nickel's commitment to Environmental and Social Responsibility (ESR) through the Community Development and Empowerment Program (CDE) in the field of health.
Harita Nickel's Head of Community Affairs, Latif Supriadi, said, "The handover of this aid is evidence of the strong synergy and support between Harita Nickel and Unkhair in the field of health. The addition of this state-of-the-art ambulance unit is expected to improve the accessibility and speed of health services to students and the community in need, especially in emergency situations."
Echoing Latif's sentiments, the Rector of Khairun University Ternate, Dr. M. Ridha Ajam, M.Hum. said, "This is Harita Nickel's commitment to the world of education, as currently Khairun University already has a Faculty of Medicine and also a clinic, namely the Unkhair Primary Clinic. Therefore, we hope that this ambulance will be able to serve the students and the community in need in the future," said the Vice Chancellor.
Considering the challenges faced by Unkhair in the past due to the limited number of ambulances, the former Vice Rector III of Unkhair also didn't forget to express his appreciation to Harita Nickel for the assistance provided by the ambulance.
Throughout the year 2023, Harita Nickel has also implemented other forms of ESR to support the improvement of healthcare services, including the donation of a sea ambulance unit to the Obi Regional General Hospital (RSUD) in March. All of these forms of social responsibility represent Harita Nickel's commitment to actively participate in and contribute to improving the well-being of the surrounding community.
