Ooredoo’s Indonesian subsidiary Indosat lent support to disaster relief efforts in Jakarta in February in the wake of severe floods that affected the city.

Ooredoo and Indosat mobilized their mobile clinics, operated in partnership with the Leo Messi Foundation, to provide free health services at the 11 most severely affected locations across Jakarta.

The mobile clinics, Mobil Klinik Ceria, provided medical assistance and emergency aid, similar to the emergency services they provided during the 2013 and 2014 Jakarta floods, through the delivery of primary healthcare services for the flood victims as well as the arrangement of food distribution for young children under the age of five.

In 2013 and 2014, Ooredoo and Indosat provided immediate assistance and emergency aid to those affected by severe flooding, working with local partners to deliver relief on the ground in affected areas as well as offering free access to mobile services, including data, SMS and voice to those affected.

In 2012, Ooredoo also aided Indonesian victims of the volcanic eruption of Mount Merapi, which forced the evacuation of 350,000 people.

Indosat also provided emergency aid following Central Java’s Banjarnegara landslide and during the floods in South Bandung of West Java.

Most recently, its mobile clinics provided assistance during the evacuation process of AirAsia’s QZ 8501 at Juanda airport and Bayangkara Hospital in Surabaya.
