CJ sends USD 200,000 and medical rescue team to Indonesia


CJ Group took initiatives to help recover Indonesia’s earthquake casualties.

CJ released on the 30th that they decided to send USD 200,000 (KRW 0.2 billion) worth of medical items and rescue materials and dispatch 25 medical personnel and volunteer workers to Yogjakarta, Indonesia that has recently been struck by a strong earthquake.

Four medical personnel had already left for Indonesia a day before to join about 20 medical advisors and volunteer workers from CJ’s subsidiary company in Indonesia in Yogjakarta.

CJ also dispatched medical personnel and volunteer workers to Indonesia when 220,000 people were killed by the tsunami in 2004. Its medical personnel and volunteer workers will work with local hospitals to treat the injured and deliver rescue materials to the sufferers.

CJ Subsidiary Company in Indonesia and CJ Main Office will directly deliver medical items, drinking water, food, and other rescue materials to Yogjakarta. 

Food includes 12,000 Hatban (cooked rice in packs) and 740 boxes of instant seaweed soup. This amount of Hatban can feed 400 people for 10 days. Medical supplies include antibiotics and pain killers for 4,000 people to use for a week.

CJ is currently raising funds from its employees and workers and is planning to provide additional supports if needed.
