As it is known, LSPR has been very active in aiding the medical personnel at the referral hospitals with PPE and nourishments. Some of those hospitals were RSPI Sulianti Saroso, RSUP Persahabatan, RS Daurat Wisma Atlet. Other than that, LSPR has also given out food to the people that have been affected near the LSPR campus area.

Mr. Hidayat who’s also a lecturer in LSPR, is also an active volunteer for the Task Force on the Acceleration of COVID-19 Handling (Gugus Tugas Percepatan Penanganan COVID-19) since 13 March 2020 when this task force was first formed by President Joko Widodo. “During this pandemic, I helped by spraying disinfectant for schools, places for worship, and other public facilitations. I also helped by distributing PPE to various areas in Indonesia, and also helped Junior Doctor Network Indonesia (JDNI) send help to Papua Province and West Papua. This was done in collaboration with the Indonesian Air Force (TNI AU)”, he said.
