The Bali Boy and Girl Scouts movement (Pramuka-Bali), in cooperation with Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport Airport – Angkasa Pura I, have joined efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19 by distributing 3,000 face masks to airport users.
As reported by NusaBali, a three-day mask distribution program commenced mid-day on Thursday, 3 December 2020.
The Scouts said they were handing out masks to serve as a good example to the public, urging all members of society to follow established health protocols to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
The general manager of Angkasa Pura I, Herry AY Sikado, said the Scouts’ distribution of face masks was the result of a collaboration by many segments of Bali’s community and represented goodwill and noble purpose by all involved.
Herry continued: “The founding principles of the Indonesian Scout Movement (Dasa Darma Pramuka) states that all members of society are obliged to act like patriots who loves his or her fellow members of society and must be willing to help each another. The collaboration between us (Angkasa Pura I) and the Scout Movement is a form of community service,”
Herry noted that despite the difficult situation in which we presently find ourselves, many members of society are demonstrating their goodness and willingness to help suppress the spread of COVID-19. He said people’s efforts, including those of Bali’s Scout Movement, to help fight the coronavirus, are worthy of everyone’s praise and appreciation.
The distribution of masks at Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport took place over three days 03-05 December 2020.
Angkasa Pura I and the Scouts were assisted in distributing the face masks by the Indonesian Air Force and the Police Precinct located at Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport.
The Secretary of Pramuka-Bali, Nyoman Aryawan, said the Scouts’ goal was to deliver a moral lesson to every citizen to remember always to wear a face mask and be aware of the many changes in everyone’s daily life imposed by living in the “new normal.”
