The handover of aid was carried out in conjunction with the Village Deliberation and Health Campaign, which was initiated by PT Pertamina EP Cepu with the Kaliombo Village government, on Friday (8/3/2019).

According to Edi Arto, PT Pertamina EP Cepu’s high commitment to the availability of sanitation access is also to support the Healthy and Smart Village Movement (GDSC), which is a program of the Bojonegoro Regency Government.
“The Sanitation Access Program which targets four villages in the Bojonegoro area has been implemented by PT Pertamina EP Cepu since 2016 so that the total Beneficiaries to date are 390 families,” explained Edi.
The four targeted villages are included in the Jambaran – Tiung Biru (JTB) Gas Project Road Access Area (AAJ).
Both the Kaliombo Village Head and Purwosari Sub-district Head appreciated the community development program implemented by PT Pertamina EP Cepu.
“PT Pertamina EP Cepu’s synergy with the Regency Government is in accordance with Bojonegoro’s ideals towards Open Defecation Free (ODF). Therefore, we would like to thank PT Pertamina EP Cepu for helping us improve the health of our residents,” said Bayudono.
In addition to handing over the MCK packages to the District PKK TP and the Village Government, PT Pertamina EP Cepu also cooperates with the PKK TP in an effort to increase public knowledge and understanding of the importance of a Clean and Healthy Lifestyle (PHBS) through proper use of MCK facilities.
