"The jerseys will be donated to Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) and will be used to generate funds that are needed to help disaster victims overcome trauma and start rebuilding their lives and environment."
Before that, DEC itself has managed to collect donations of two million pounds sterling (IDR39.6 billion) for disaster victims in Palu plus one million pounds of assistance from the British Government.
Not only donating jerseys, the Reds also invite fans all over the world to participate in helping the disaster’s survivors.
