Kuala Lumpur, 15 April 2019 – Dagang NeXchange Berhad (“DNeX”) has extended assistance to displaced communities of recent earthquakes in Lombok, Indonesia.
Called DNeX Lombok Aid 2019, the assistance comprises food supplies and basic necessities worth RM50,000 to bring humanitarian relief to affected communities.
The aid was presented by Executive Deputy Chairman of DNeX Datuk Samsul Husin to Hj Niken Widiyawati Zulkieflimansyah, wife of Dr Zulkieflimansyah, Governor of Nusa Tenggara Barat, in Lombok recently.
“Our hearts go out to survivors of the recent earthquakes in Lombok, Indonesia and we value the opportunity to offer assistance by making a small contribution to the relief efforts,” said Datuk Samsul Husin.
He said DNeX is committed to supporting programmes to uplift those who are in need, and aligned to the company’s corporate social responsibility (“CSR”) targeted at underprivileged communities and educational programmes.
“Our CSR programmes have largely been within Malaysia yet we believe such initiatives should not be confined by geography. Hence, we have extended the reach of these programmes in recent years,” he added.
Last year, the company helped raised funds to provide aid to survivors of the earthquake and tsunami in Sulawesi, Indonesia. In 2017, the company hosted its Muzik4Humanity benefit concert to raise funds for children affected by conflict who are in need of basic care. Proceeds from the benefit concert were channeled to MERCY’s Little Caliph programme in Kandahar, Afghanistan that facilitates provision of nutritional food and education for children affected by conflict.
DNeX has a subsidiary operating in Jakarta, Indonesia called PT Dagang Net Indonesia, which business is focused on eServices for Trade Facilitation and Logistics sectors.
