Karma Group Launches CSR Food Initiative for Staff in Bali

On April 28th and 29th, a key team set up a food distribution point for the 98 staff residing in the nearby Wijaya Kusuma Village and Ungasan Villages.

The pause on global travel has dramatically impacted Bali and its people. Which is why the Karma Group has launched a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) food initiative to support staff and their families during these challenging times. 

Present during the food distribution set up were Esron Panjaitan, Regional Head of Human Resources, Sebastien Marteau (Karma Kandara General Manager), Lucky Christian (Legal Manager), with Head of Village Community, Wayan Disel Astawa, and Head of Ungasan Territory, Made Kari.

Says Made Kari, ‘As a result of covid-19 impact from all provinces in Indonesia, the most affected is Bali. This is primarily due to the fact that income is more than sixty percent depending on tourism.’ He says the community greatly appreciates the financial support by the Karma Group during this challenging time. 

To date, food vouchers have also been distributed to 759 staff, alongside 225 sacks of rice to staff most vulnerable.
