Particularly in the appeal of the smile, participants were asked to sign a board containing many palms and divided into three colors, each representing different factors that caused diabetes.
This action is jointly responsible for diabetics in Indonesia.
"They have given their signatures, it means that the participants have donated Rp.1000, which is donated to Kemonitas Sobat Diabetes to train and prevent diabetes in various regions of Indonesia," he said.
