The Indonesian Red Cross (PMI) raises humanitarian aid funds for handling the COVID-19 outbreak in Indonesia through payment methods based on Quick Response Code Indonesia Standard (QRIS)
PMI Secretary General Sudirman Said in Jakarta on Sunday said PMI had officially launched a special fundraiser for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19.
"Like previous Humanitarian Donations, PMI also uses Quick Response Code Indonesia Standard (QRIS) for fundraising. PMI uses the TID-03 code," he said.
Fundraising through QRIS-PMI is intended to facilitate the community in making donations to support the prevention and treatment of the spread of the COVID-19 that is being intensively carried out by PMI.
"For people who want to make donations through PMI to help us handle COVID-19, can directly donate to QRIS-PMI with the TID-03 code. This QRIS can be used now," he said.
Information about QRIS-PMI specifically for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19 can be accessed on the website donasi.pmi.or.id and on PMI social media, namely twitter @ palangmerah, Instagram @ palangmerah_indonesia, and the Indonesian Red Cross facebook fanpage.
This community donation, said Sudirman, will greatly support PMI activities in the prevention and management of COVID-19, including through massive health promotion for clean and healthy behavior (PHBS) to the public and spraying disinfectants in public areas, such as houses of worship, schools, markets and public offices.
"The action that PMI took was to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 from becoming more widespread. These two actions are currently being intensified among the people," the Secretary General of PMI said.
Sudirman Said said that the handling of the COVID-19 outbreak must be conducted together. This has become a momentum for all citizens of the nation to help each other.
"This is the time for all of us to do something and help each other. Together, we are against COVID-19," Sudirman Said stated.
