September 1, 2015 /3BL Media/ - A hail storm and freezing temperatures from July 5-7 destroyed crops in Agandugume District and surrounding regions in Papua, Indonesia.
The damage to the vegetation crops caused a food crisis for 26 villages in three central highland regencies. In response to this situation, PT Freeport Indonesia provided logistical support and supplies as part of the relief mission.
A total of 4.4 tons of food as well as supplies were provided to deal with the natural disaster.
