    KITA and Exporter Jointly Donate Hand Sanitizers to Indonesia

    - Some By Me has donated 5,000 hand sanitizers to Indonesian Red Cross -


    Jakarta branch of the Korea International Trade Association (Chairman: Kim Young-ju) announced that it had recently donated 5,000 hand sanitizers (equivalent to 25 million won) to the Indonesian Red Cross in cooperation with Some By Me, a Korean cosmetics company.


    Some by Me is a company that makes cosmetics, including skincare products and face wash using natural ingredients, and mainly exports to the New Southern regions such as Indonesia. In recent years, the company is well recognized as many local celebrities have introduced the products. 


    Some By Me contacted the headquarters of the Korea International Trade Association in late March and said that the company wanted to donate to help Indonesia, which was struggling with the spread of COVID-19. Acordingly, the association signed a donation agreement with the Indonesian Red Cross through the Jakarta branch, and took full responsibility from customs clearance to distribution of hand sanitizers.


    For the delivery of the goods, Jusuf Kalla, the former vice president of Indonesia and now president of the Red Cross, attended and expressed his gratitude. Donated hand sanitizers will be delivered to 34 command centers operated by the Red Cross as well as low-income families in Batam, Bali, and Manado, etc.


    Lee Ji-eun, CEO of Some By Me, said, “This donation is not intended to promote our products, but to help prevent the spread of coronavirus, and stressed, We hope that our hand sanitizers will help Indonesia overcome the epidemic crisis in a small way.”


    Cho Hak-hee, head of the International Affairs Group at the Korea International Trade Association, said, Many companies are struggling with COVID-19, but there are also many companies that fulfill their social responsibility by donating diagnostic kits, protective gear, food and beverages, etc., and added, The appearance of Korean companies reaching out to local people abroad will greatly contribute to the image of Korea.
