MATAHARI JOINS GOTO GROUP TO BUILD GOTONG ROYONG OXYGEN HOUSE

PT Matahari Department Store Tbk (“Matahari” or “the Company” or “LPPF”) commits IDR 5 billion to the joint effort to build the Gotong Royong Oxygen House (“ROGR”) located in Pulogadung, East Jakarta. The semi-permanent centralized self-isolation facility is an initiative to overcome the challenges of the pandemic initiated by a consortium led by GoTo Group.  As a centralized isolation facility, ROGR has 500 beds divided into four (4) isolation houses.

Appreciation for Matahari’s strong support for ROGR came from Monica Oudang, Chairwoman of the Anak Bangsa Bisa Foundation. "We really appreciate the support of private parties such as Matahari in handling COVID-19. With this support, the Oxygen House can be realized in a short time and can become a centralized self-isolation facility that can help reduce the burden on hospitals.”

Terry O’Connor, CEO of Matahari said, “Matahari continues to take part in real action against the Covid-19 pandemic. We collaborate with various parties to support the reduction of the virus spread through a successful employees’ vaccination program, tightening the workplace regulations of health protocols, and various programs designed to help Covid-19 patients, daily workers, students and health front liners. By following the health protocols and regulations, we believe that we can create the safest shopping experience and the safest workplace”.

Andre Soelistyo, CEO of GoTo Group said, "The facility will provide an ongoing supply of oxygen to those who need it the most - it will save lives and alleviate suffering for many people in the city. No one should have to suffer due to a lack of oxygen and we are determined to work with government and private sector partners to play a role in helping to alleviate this national problem.”
