Faculty of Medicine Universitas Indonesia (FKUI) through the Community Service Team of the Department of Medical Chemistry FKUI chaired by Dr. Fadilah, S.Si, M.Si, conducted a program for making hand-sanitizers to be distributed to hospitals, clinics, offices, and schools for free.
The production of the hand sanitizer has been started since March 2020 at the Laboratory of the Department of Chemistry FKUI Salemba campus, supported by 10-15 volunteers. This initiation is based on the scarcity of these products in the market since the Covid-19 outbreak. The hand-sanitizer that was produced was later named “Kimi Hand-Care”.
Head of the Department of Medical Chemistry FKUI, Dr. Ade Arsianti, S.Si., M.Si, said that the hand-sanitizer they made was by the recommendation from the World Health Organization (WHO). “The hand washing liquid that we make follows the formula recommended by WHO. Previously, we had also distributed hand sanitizers for free to the public, they can take the sanitizer for free from our office at UI Salemba with a limited supply of 100 bottles per day. The program ended on March 18, 2020,” she said.
The Department of Medical Chemistry FKUI then collaborated with the Universitas Indonesia Alumni Association (ILUNI) regarding donations for the production and distribution of these hand sanitizers. The public can participate by donating through ILUNI UI (account number: 070 0000202585 – ILUNI UI Bank Mandiri KC Jakarta Plaza Mandiri or 2025806665 – ILUNI UI – BNI Cabang UI Depok, add 001 code on the last digit of donation and confirm your donation to 08119595953 – Devan).
