Partnering with World Vision, diversified industrial enterprise Jebsen & Jessen South East Asia (SEA) has launched its 2017 Meet A Need program to help construct proper drinking and hygienic sanitation facilities in Mautenda village, Ende regency, East Nusa Tenggara.
The project aims to protect children from infection and disease by increasing good hygiene and sanitation practices within the family and community.
“Meet A Need is a fundamental component of our commitment to the markets we work in and in helping to produce a meaningful impact on disadvantage communities” said Jebsen & Jessen (SEA) chairman Heinrich Jessen.
