JAKARTA, NETRALNEWS.COM - The Indonesian Ministry of Social Affairs has appreciated the humanitarian fighters, consisting of health workers and volunteers, who have been fighting the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic for one year.

"We thank all humanitarian fighters, from health workers and volunteers, who have been fighting for a year," said Minister of Social Affairs Tri Rismaharini.

This statement was made by the Minister of Social Affairs at the Peak Night of the 1 Year Fight against Covid-19 at the Wisma Atlet COVID Emergency Hospital in  Kemayoran, Jakarta, on Tuesday (03/23/2021) night.

Also attending the event were Head of the National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB) Lt. Gen. Doni Monardo, and Head of the Indonesian Armed Forces Health Center as the Coordinator of the Wisma Atlet Hospital Maj. Gen. TNI Dr. dr. Tubagus Ratmono.

Risma said it was not easy to manage the Wisma Atlet Hospital, because in addition to requiring high discipline, it also has to unite various elements with clearly different backgrounds.

"We believe it is not easy to manage the Wisma Atlet Hospital. With the spirit of mutual cooperation and togetherness, we can unite various backgrounds into one noble goal, namely for the sake of humanitarian tasks," said the Minister of Social Affairs.

As a symbolic part of the event, there were 53 health workers and volunteers who have worked for a year who took part in the event, so that they deserve recognition as humanitarian fighters.
