The fires and resulting region-wide haze are an annual dry-season problem, but experts warn the current outbreak is on track to become the worst ever, exacerbated by tinder-dry conditions from the El Nino weather phenomenon.

We are now facing smoke disaster with 308 hot spots in Sumatra, according to Badan Meteorologi Klimatologi dan Geofisika (Meteorology Climatology and Geophysics Council). As a step to anticipate the life-threatening disaster, the governor of Central Kalimantan has declared an emergency status to its region.

Meanwhile, Sinabung Mountain in Sumatra, Gamalama Mountain in Ternate, and Raung Mountain in East Java are now active and spreading their volcanic ashes.

Badan Nasional Penanggulangan Bencana (BNPB) along with Badan Penanggulangan Bencana Daerah (BPBD) and other institutions are giving their best efforts to handle smoke haze and volcanic ash disaster. Distribution of safety masker to citizens is essential to overcome and minimalize the impact of the deadly smoke haze and volcanic ash.

Sejuta Masker Dunia Usaha Peduli (One Million Maskers) is a step taken by BNPB to speed up the process of helping the victims of the disaster, as well as a chance given to Masyarakat Dunia Usaha to contribute to the citizens.

Sejuta Masker Dunia Usaha Peduli is expected to raise national solidarity and awareness.

Sejuta Masker Dunia Usaha Peduli mirrors generosity as well as upgrading the image of national private companies, BUMN, PMDN, and PMA in an implementation package of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program.
