BALI Provincial Government through the Bali Provincial Tourism Office has received 18 portable pedal hand washing facilities in 9 travel destinations from tiket.com.
According to the Co-Founder & Chief Marketing Officer of tiket.com, Gaery Undarsa, said with the commitment to present the best solution for the Indonesian people in the whole Bali province, tiket.com chose to coordinate with the Bali Provincial Tourism Office to select 9 travel destinations that require assistance for hand washing facilities. The chosen locations are Desa Wisata Sangeh, Air Panas Banjar, Jatiluwih, Tirta Empul, Pantai Sanur, Ceking, Desa Wisata Bakas, Desa Wisata Penglipuran, dan Kawasan Pura Besakih.
“The assistance was received in a form of tiket.com Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in Pura Tirta Empul, Gianyar, Bali recently, as one of the selected locations for the installation of a sink for washing hands,” he said.
Gaery Undarsa explained that the CSR activity is a part of our campaign called Semangat Kembali Liburan (SEMBILAN) that was created to enforce health protocols for tourist to stay safe and healthy when travelling. This is also a form of support from tiket.com for the government program by strengthening CHSE (Cleanliness, Health, Safety and Environment) for Indonesia’s tourist destination especially ones that are managed by the community who are currently rising right after the pandemic.
“tiket.com is always ready to contribute towards government programs especially in terms of preventing the spread of COVID-19 as well as enforcing health protocols in tourist destinations. As of now, we are focusing our help in Bali which are pilot destinations for the adaptation to the new normal era, and these 9 locations are community-managed tourist destinations who need assistance for sanitation facilities,” Gaery noted.
He added that with the existence of hand washing facilities in public spaces, it could be beneficial in the long term. In addition, it makes it easier for people to reach sanitation needs by washing their hands as a preventive effort in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the existence of these facilities aims to familiarize people with the discipline of implementing the CHSE protocol everywhere.
Meanwhile I Putu Astawa, Head of Bali Provincial Tourism Office said the Bali Tourism Office welcomes this program initiative from tiket.com, especially since the Bali Provincial Tourism Office has previously collaborated with tiket.com in CSR assistance packages for daily workers in the tourism sector in Bali due to the impact of the pandemic in May.
“We, the Bali Provincial Tourism Office have been very open and welcoming as well as appreciating the CSR program of tiket.com for their assistance and concern against the handling of COVID-19. We would like to help by recommending tourist destinations in both city and district, surveys, and assistance to comb the areas that are directly managed by the community and those that do not have adequate hygiene facilities. The hope is that these tourist sites can also implement safety and health protocols for all visitors,” he concluded. [traveltext.id]
