After being delayed due to the pandemic, Habitat Indonesia again held the Habitat Charity Golf Tournament on December 15, 2021, at Imperial Club Golf Karawaci.
Habitat Charity Golf Tournament is a routine event held every 2 years since 2010, as a place for Indonesian golfers to compete while doing charity work, donating to support the provision of housing for underprivileged communities in various regions in Indonesia.
Susanto, National Director of Habitat for Humanity Indonesia said “The pandemic has taught us the importance of proper housing for families. The recommendation to "Stay at Home" must be equipped with a proper and healthy home as an initial step to protect families from the Covid-19 virus. Indonesia still needs 10 million decent houses and through the Habitat Charity Golf Tournament we are able to meet some of the needs for decent housing, especially for people who can't afford it, so as to create a healthy and strong Indonesia. Since the tournament was first held in 2010, until now, through the Habitat Charity Golf Tournament we have built more than 200 livable houses.”
The participants of the Habitat Charity Golf Tournament are given the option of donating, namely to support the construction of each new housing unit, they donate 50 million rupiah, and to support the renovation of each house unit, they donate 30 million rupiah.
This year, Bank HSBC Indonesia is the main sponsor of the Habitat Charity Golf Tournament 2021.
Francois de Maricourt, President Director, PT Bank HSBC Indonesia said “HSBC is committed to supporting sustainable economic and community development in Indonesia. We are pleased to be able to support Habitat for Humanity Indonesia in the program to build decent housing for the people of Mauk, Wringinanom, and Babakan Madang, as a manifestation of our commitment in Indonesia.”
“We are very grateful, Habitat Charity Golf Tournament 2021, which had been delayed for a year, has managed to collect donations for the construction of 22 houses for the community in Mauk-Tangerang, Babakan Madang-Sentul and Winginanom-Gresik which will begin at the end of January 2022. I would like to thank all parties involved,” concluded Susanto.
