Argon Group, through Argon Peduli, contributes to promoting the quality of public health in the city of Pangkalpinang by organizing a social service event. Various activities were carried out by Argon Peduli in collaboration with the Indonesian Red Cross (PMI), including blood donations, free medical treatments, and distribution of basic necessities in the city known as the "City of a Thousand Smiles" on Saturday, June 10, 2023.
Hundreds of enthusiastic residents attended the event to receive medical check-ups, including blood pressure, blood sugar, uric acid, and cholesterol checks. The social service event also provided doctors, allowing residents to have direct consultations and receive appropriate medications.
Mr. Wahyono, the Secretary of PMI Pangkalpinang, expressed appreciation for the presence of Argon Group through the Argon Peduli program in Pangkalpinang. He stated that this event has helped PMI meet the blood supply needs in Pangkalpinang.
"We express our gratitude for the contribution of Argon Group in this social service event. For Pangkalpinang, the demand for blood is extraordinary, around 30-40 bags every day. With a target of 50 blood bags today, it can help the community. The demand comes not only from the residents of Pangkalpinang but also from residents of Bangka Island because many hospitals in Pangkalpinang are referral centers," expressed Mr. Wahyono.
In his speech, Mr. Apri Andi Wijaya, the Area Sales Manager of AAM Pangkalpinang, expressed hope that this social service event would further strengthen the good relationship between Argon Group and the people of Pangkalpinang and provide better healthcare services.
