Today, the Ministry of Social Affairs received assistance in the form of 100 units of the Singer sewing machines. The ceremonial handover of the sewing machine was held in the main lobby at the Ministry of Social Affairs Office, Jalan Salemba 28, Jakarta.

“The sewing machines will also be distributed to scavengers, because there are scavengers who have sewing skills as well. They can make masks which we will buy later, and then we will give them to people in need,” said the Minister of Social Affairs.
