Coca-Cola Amatil Indonesia provided support in the form of segregated trash bin and hand washing booth to the Save Cikarang River Community on Friday (23/10). The handover was carried out by Radita Wicaksana, CCAI Corporate Affairs Executive to the community volunteer team represented by Eko Jatmiko at Warung Bongkok Bamboo Forest, Sukadanau Village, West Cikarang, Bekasi Regency.

The handover was carried out as a form of company support for environmental conservation efforts carried out by the community on the banks of the Cikarang River in commemoration of World Habitat Day which is celebrated every October. Not only that, this step is also a form of support for the emergence of conservation areas as well as education for the community regarding the importance of preserving nature in Bekasi Regency area.

"The Warung Bongkok Bamboo Forest is a very crucial area in our efforts to preserve nature and also serves as a center for environmental education for the community, especially those in Bekasi Regency. It is hoped that this donation will help supporting the activities carried out by our community at Warung Bongkok Bamboo Forest," said Radita.

Eko Jatmiko as the volunteer coordinator of the Save Cikarang River Community appreciates the steps taken by Amatil Indonesia. He said that this support was important for the activities he and the community team were doing at Warung Bongkok Bamboo Forest.

“The current location of the Bamboo Forest can be said to be an area of ‚Äč‚Äčconservation and education for the community to increase awareness of the environment. This assistance certainly helps us to carry out various activities in this effort," said Eko.

The realization of support between CCAI and the Save Cikarang River Community cannot be separated from the participation of elements of the surrounding community, especially those carried out by the Sukadanau Village Youth Organization. Previously, CCAI also supported the activities of the One Thousand Volunteer Liberation Movement in Bekasi, last August.
