The Tranmere Rovers Football Club family continue to offer their support in the fight against COVID-19 not just in the local area, but across the World in Indonesia through its partners, The Santini Group and TRFC director, Lukito Wanandi.
The Santini Group, who are based in the country's largest city, Jakarta, donated 10 Billion Rupiah (£500,000) to the Indonesian Red Cross in March to help support the critical work they are doing on a daily basis.
The donation was delivered personally by Wanandi, who alongside his director role at Tranmere Rovers, is the president director of the Santini Group to the Indonesian Red Cross Chairman, Jusef Kalla.
Tranmere Rovers Football Club have been partnered with The Santini Group since September 2019 after they purchased shares in the Wirral based football club.
The Santini Group is a significant family-owned Indonesian headquartered business. The Group has many investments ranging from automotive products, real estate development, financial services and infrastructure.
Both Tranmere Rovers and The Santini Group share the same ethos of wanting to help support the community and both organisations volunteer to offer key support. These shared ethical values proved to be a decisive reason as to why the pair linked up last year.
Indonesia is recognised as the most generous country in the World after a study from the Jakarta Post, showed 53% of the nation participate in volunteering activities to support the community, whilst 78% donate money to key causes.
Back on English shores, Tranmere Rovers likewise have been doing what they can to lend their hand to the local community.
The Club has developed a scheme to ensure vulnerable people who are self-isolating can be supported by daily phone calls and assistance with food deliveries, with support from many volunteers from Wirral.
With TRFC and HelpLink now teaming up as a cohesive unit, it is proving to be one of the most effective ways for people to get the help that is required. Collectively they are now helping just shy of 1,000 vulnerable individuals receive the assistance that was so badly needed.
