BATAM. National food prices are rising significantly, threatening to reach record levels in the coming months if current trends continue. It also has threatened to increase the number of poverty in Indonesia.
Therefore, to overcome this poor condition, the employees of PT. Unisem cooperated with RZ to distribution free packages of nine kinds of basic needs (sembako) for underprivileged families in Setokok Island, Bulang, Kota Batam, Saturday (27/6).
The packages contained rice, cooking oil, sugar, tea and corned. There were 120 families who get the packs.
