"We collaborate to provide something that is really needed by the Palu community and its surroundings at this time, namely lighting," explained the INTI President Director Darman Mappangara, Thursday (04/10).
In each unit, a product called SMILE is equipped with three LEDs which are equivalent to a 20 Watt lamp that can run up to 18 hours.

"Access to electricity, communication with outside areas, and lighting are important points that concern us," explained Darman.
The humanitarian aid packaged in 75 large boxes was sent through the Ujung Barat Pier, Muara Baru Harbor, Penjaringan, North Jakarta, using the Baruna Jaya 1 Ship.
The plan, the assistance will arrive at Pantoloan Port, Palu, Central Sulawesi, in approximately six days. After arriving, these 300 SMILE units will be submitted to the Telkom Post
