#Banjir2021: Here’s How You Can Help

Last week, parts of the country were hit by some of the worst floods we’ve seen in the last 100 years.

 

Nobody was prepared. Even the people who were prepared weren’t prepared.

 

Either way, we knew we had to do something.

 

So, because we’re in the #KitaJagaKita timeline (and have been for most of the pandemic, LBR), apart from giving staff three days paid leave for volunteering work, we also compiled a list of organisations you can reach out to if you’d like to help with relief efforts.

 

This list will be updated regularly. Check it out below:
