BOGOR (November 11, 2022) - A total of 164 beneficiaries from various sub-districts in Bogor Regency received ATENSI aid consisting of tools and packages to fulfill basic needs in the form of groceries and nutrition. This week the distribution of ATENSI was carried out for 2 days, on 10 and 11 November 2022.
The distribution of the assistance on the first day was also witnessed by the Head of the Bogor Regency Social Office, Mustakim. In his remarks, Mustakim stated that he was ready to support the ATENSI program for his residents. "We are ready to help, one of which is that we will make efforts for all beneficiaries who, according to the assessment results, need assistance, and have not been registered with DTKS, so that they are immediately proposed to enter DTKS," said Mustakim.
In addition to conveying the results of the integrated assessment that was carried out in the Bogor regency, the Head of Galih Pakuan Center Siti Sari Rumayanti symbolically handed over ATENSI aid to the Head of Bogor Regency Social Office.
On this first day, as many as 54 beneficiaries gathered at Bogor Regency Social Office, 29 of whom were hearing aid recipients. Before receiving the aids, one by one they were examined for their hearing condition. The examination involved officers from ABDI Hearing Aid Center. After being examined, they then get hearing aids according to their respective hearing conditions. On this occasion ABDI officers also provided education to beneficiaries, consisting of the elderly and disabled, about using these hearing aids.
"The installation of this hearing aid must be adjusted to the hearing conditions of the clients, so here we have to make sure which hearing aid is suitable for them," said Eti, one of the officers from ABDI.
George, a 10-year-old boy who is one of the recipients of hearing aids, said he was very happy to receive this assistance. "Thank you very much, this hearing aid is very useful for my child, it will help him while studying at school," said Marsius, who is George's father, when accompanying his son.
Marsius is very grateful to the Ministry of Social Affairs through Galih Pakuan Center Bogor, for the assistance that has been provided. Still, on the first day, 25 packages of food and nutrition were also distributed to 25 disability beneficiaries.
