BMM and PT SMI Facilitate Health Access for Remote Residents with Floating Ambulances

The difficulty of access to health, especially accommodation to the hospital, is a problem felt by the people of Katingan Regency, Central Kalimantan. The limited access by land means that people have to travel 6 hours by river and incur huge costs of up to millions of rupiah to rent a boat in order to access health facilities and emergency services at the nearest hospital, Sampit Hospital and Katingan Hospital.

Baitulmaal Muamalat (BMM) together with PT Sarana Multi Infrastruktur (PT SMI) made a real contribution to answer this problem by providing a river ambulance unit equipped with a set of medical equipment to the local community, precisely who live in Subur Indah Village, Bumi Subur Village, and Jaya Makmur Village, which totaled 1,500 families on November 24, 2021.

The assistance is one of PT SMI's CSR programs by cooperating with BMM as a channel partner. The management was handed over to local community leaders, namely Mr. Suyanto as Head of Tahfizh Al-Amien House and H. Jumangat as Head of Bumi Subur Village. "I feel very happy and surprised at the same time, Alhamdulillah there are good people out there who think about accessing our health by sending a river ambulance to our place," said H. Jumanmat.

BMM and PT SMI hope that through this river ambulance, Katingan Village residents can more easily get health services so that emergency handling can be carried out more quickly and it is also hoped that this program can be part of the effort to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially the 3rd point, namely achieving goal of a healthy and prosperous life.
