PT DAHANA’s Social and Environmental Responsibility Unit (SER) unit visited residents’ homes in Kampung Dukuh I, Sadawarna Village, Cibogo District, Subang Regency, Monday, March 18, 2024. The DAHANA SER Team provided extra food (PMT) to two toddlers to help eradicate stunting. This activity was a continuation of the previous program to screen pregnant women and toddlers in need of additional nutrition.

DAHANA’s Social and Environmental Responsibility (SER) Supervisor Enok Elia Farida said that stunting is an issue that has become a concern for the company in recent years. Ms Farida said that stunting is a big problem because it can hinder children’s growth both physically and cognitively, and will ultimately lead to more complex issues in the future.

“DAHANA is committed to supporting the government’s program to achieve zero stunting, starting from the environment around the Company. Stunting must be faced together and it requires collaboration. We also hope that as the days go by, more and more residents will become aware of this problem,” said Ms Farida.

She added that as a state-owned company operating in Subang Regency, DAHANA wished to progress together with the people of Subang Regency, both in the fields of health, education and also the community’s economy.

Eradicating stunting is DAHANA’s agenda for implementation of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Mr Suherman continued that by eradicating stunting, Indonesia has the potential to have a superior generation that will lead to the dream of a Golden Indonesia 2045.

In the effort of eradicating stunting around the Company, DAHANA collaborated with local authorities such as the Sadawarna Village midwife to find out the right targets for the assistance. It is planned that the DAHANA’s SER unit will provide assistance to two beneficiaries over the next three months on a regular basis.

“Of course the residents are grateful for the assistance from DAHANA to improve their children’s health. They hoped that this assistance will bring positive changes in preventing stunting and that it will be effective and sustainable in the long term. Also, this assistance is expected to increase awareness of all elements of society about the dangers of stunting,” concluded Ms Farida.
