Vice President Urges All to Ramp Up Contributions for Nation during Eid al-Adha

Vice President of the Republic of Indonesia, Prof. Dr. K.H. Ma’ruf Amin, reminded all stakeholders, from civil society, communities to corporations, to reflect on Eid al-Adha as the momentum to intensify their respective contributions to cushion the economy from the pandemic impacts and speed up national recovery. 

The reminder was conveyed at the opening of the Huawei Indonesia Berbagi untuk Negeri. The event was held online to abide by the strictest health protocols. 

In his opening address, the Vice President emphasized the essence of qurban during the pandemic is the spirit of helping others, especially those in need. The Vice President said that qurban can take the form of anything, according to the needs and abilities of the people.

“Eid al-Adha is a moment for us to remember the importance of doing qurban to help each other. The pandemic has caused many troubles, from job losses, poverty, to threats to our health and well-beings. I invite everyone to do qurban by setting aside what we have to help them,” he advised.

“The recent resurgence of COVID-19 cases in our beloved Indonesia should be a push for us all to do more in our qurban wholeheartedly in order to overcome the pandemic. I thank all stakeholders taking part this Berbagi untuk Negeri event, that is Huawei and Moslem communities, to use this as a momentum to reinvigorate the spirit of qurban in contributing for the greatest sake of common good and society’s well-beings. ”

Sharing a similar view with the Vice President, Chairman of MES, Erick Thohir, said in a statement, “Qurban is one of avenues to distribute wealth, promote equality and push economic growth. Eid al-Adha should be a good momentum to put the interests of the entire society above everything else. During this pandemic, we invite all parties to combine efforts to pump up our optimism, hopes and confidence that we can overcome this difficult situation by going hand-in-hand together. I would like to thank His Excellency the Vice President of the Republic of Indonesia, MUI, PBNU, Muhammadiyah, and Huawei Indonesia for making this qurban event happen.” 

Jacky Chen, CEO of Huawei Indonesia, said that the company welcomes the Vice President’s and MES’s encouragement regarding Berbagi untuk Negeri. He said that the encouragement is in line with Huawei’s commitment for Indonesia since it first opened its doors in Indonesia over 21 years ago.

“The values of Eid al-Adha spur us to resume our contributions, namely our ICT expertise, for the sake of the nation’s advancement and prosperity. We have also built emergency infrastructures in islands that served as quarantine areas in the early stages of the pandemic and contributed our cloud-based technologies to hospitals to improve COVID-19 diagnosis as well as educational institutions to support remote learning. Through Berbagi untuk Negeri, as part of Huawei I DO CARE, we hope to be able to share our spirit, hope, and optimism with the people of Indonesia as we fight against the COVID-19 pandemic together,” Jacky explained.

Other than reaffirming its commitment to contribute its technology to accelerate recovery from COVID-19, Berbagi untuk Negeri sees Huawei donating qurban animals to 15 cities located in the 4 regions where Huawei Indonesia operates: Jakarta, Bandung, Surabaya, Semarang, Yogyakarta, Lombok, Bali, Medan, Pekanbaru, Lampung, Palembang, Makassar, Balikpapan, Banjarmasin, and Pontianak. 

Meanwhile, Chairman of PP Muhammadiyah, Prof. Dr. K.H. Haedar Nashir, M.Si., said, “On behalf of Pimpinan Pusat Muhammadiyah, I would like to appreciate Huawei Indonesia’s qurban donation in commemoration of Eid al-Adha 1442H and its power to forge stronger bonds. This positive activity helps strengthen the nation’s ties and togetherness. Furthermore, the activity also means greater unity between Muslims and Indonesians as part of the same body: supporting each other, protecting each other, and uniting to yield greater benefits and advancements to many.”

He added that the activity will also move Muslims to donate and cultivate the spirit of giving and helping those in need. Empowered by the spirit of togetherness and Eid al-Adha, hopefully the entire nation may sow the seeds of goodness, progress, and unity so as to grow into the nation’s strategic pillars in the future.
