Maternal and child health is one of the focuses of the Community Empowerment Program (PPM) of PT Agincourt Resources (PTAR) through the Community Development Department. On Tuesday, 3 January 2023, PTAR conducted a handover for the Completion of the Recovery Program for Malnourished Children to Good (normal) which was carried out at the Batangtoru Health Center and Muara Batangtoru Health Center.
In a program that lasts for 5 months, starting on August 9, 2022 and end on December 21, 2022, PTAR provides assistance in the form of health checks, namely blood tests, X-rays, and stool examinations in the laboratory of Metta Medika Padangsidimpuan Hospital. In addition, PTAR also supplies formula milk as additional nutrition, according to the advice of a Pediatrician who monitors this program regularly, once every two weeks.
Three patients receive this benefit, Nurdia Sihombing from Padang Lancat Sisoma Village aged 1 year and 8 months, Afifah Zahra from Hutaraja Village aged 4 years and 6 months, and Salsa Sabilah from Muara Manompas Village is aged 2 years and 3 months. The three patients were released after the Pediatrician stated that the three patients were in good nutritional condition. They also received a certificate as an award after successfully participating in the Malnutrition Recovery Program.
