Luthfiany Azwawie said “Banana and guava are very beneficial for children and family in this pandemic, since Indonesia is on the highest level of children who infected by the Covid 19 in Asia Pacific, which the fatality rate is 9.1 %. Therefore we commit to contribute in increasing their immunity systems by balancing the nourishment need of children from under privileged families”.
Government owned flats were chosen since most of the parents work on informal sector who baldy impacted by the pandemic, therefore the children’s nourishment need could be neglected due to the condition, in addition to the children are engaging actively in online study under Paud SuryaKasih.
Meanwhile, ROF’s representative, Cipto Rustianto feels grateful with this donation. Since the nourishment and healthy are the main factor to succeed in holistic early childhood education. “We envision to holistically provide early childhood education and development for children from underprivileged families, not only right education, provision and parenting but health and nourishment as well”.

ReachOut Foundation puts its early childhood education to be solid foundation to establish reliable human resources of Indonesia in the future. “Many people wrongfully assume that early childhood education (PAUD) is not significant in educating a generation, ironically Paud itself has become solid foundation of education quality is achieved, so Sunpride contribution is well appreciated, and we appreciate it so much.” Said Cipto.
