TEMPO.CO, JakartaBasuki Tjahaja Purnama alias Ahok said that he still determined to give a hand to the people in need despite no longer being a governor of Jakarta. One of his efforts is providing an application which connects givers and beneficiaries dubbed Jangkau.

“This Jangkau app is similar to blibli.com or Tokopedia. Those who want to help and those who are in need will meet [in the app],” said the former governor of Jakarta when receiving Roosseno Award IX-2019 in Roosseno Plaza, Kemang, South Jakarta, Monday, July 22.

Ahok, who now prefers to be called BTP, explained givers could upload their unused items for donation to the application that could be released on August 1, 2019. 

“Hopefully, if the demand is high, we may hold an off-air event. The revenue will later be donated to a foundation that we name BTP Foundation (Beri Tanpa Pamrih or giving selflessly),” he remarked.

Accompanied by his wife, BTP attended the award ceremony for his hard work and high integrity. His former deputy governor, Djarot Saiful Hidayat, also presented at the event.
