Not only casualties but various public facilities such as schools and hospitals and other buildings were severely damaged. The electricity network, availability of clean water, communication channels and fuel were difficult to get.
Various aids arrived both from within and outside the country for the earthquake and tsunami disaster. PT Kutai Timber Indonesia is no exception. All management staff and employees also mourn the disaster that hit our brothers there. Moreover, this incident was occurred just after the Lombok disaster before.
As a sense of concern PT Kutai Timber Indonesia channeled aid through the Probolinggo Indonesian Red Cross and was delivered directly by representatives of employees and third parties’ employees along with the Head of HRD Mr. M RincaSetiawan and Executive Officer Mr. H.
