Jakarta, 20 May 2020 --- The Eid Al Fitr 1441 H, which falls on 24-25 May 2020, will be a special Lebaran for BNI Hi-Movers, so the employees of PT Bank Negara Indonesia (Persero) Tbk are now called. Unlike Lebaran in previous years, BNI Hi-Movers were called upon by their social lives to care for those affected by the Covid Pandemic-19, by setting aside a portion of the Holiday Allowance (THR). The BNI Hi-Movers mass social action succeeded in collecting donations valued at Rp 130.2 billion, ready to be distributed for urgent needs to eradicate Covid-19.
This joint action also invites the Indonesian people to remain optimistic by sharing kindness with those who struggle to overcome the impact of Covid-19. BNI wants to build togetherness, by stating that BNI is always there for the community in any condition, especially what is happening now. The hope is that the sooner the impact of Covid-19 is overcome, the sooner the economic life of the community will return to normal. This employee THR donation is wrapped up as the #AntarkanSangat program to all those who struggle with Covid-19.
"BNI Hi-Movers is there for Indonesia by making a direct contribution in efforts to accelerate the prevention and control of the impact of Covid-19, so that the economy can return to work. The momentum is very precise with the Holy Month of Ramadan where every good will be recorded to multiply," said the BNI’s Deputy Managing Director, Anggoro Eko Cahyo in Jakarta, Wednesday (20 May 2020).
The donation of BNI employees is planned to be distributed to 2 large groups of aid, namely Health Assistance and Food Aid. Health Assistance will be distributed to 10 Swamed Clinics in 10 different areas, and procures 2 ambulances with the standard handling of patients with Covid-19. The Health Assistance will also be allocated to provide 3 sets of PCR equipment, 10,000 Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), and 51,000 Covid-19 tests.
The Food Aid will be distributed in the form of Nine Basic Foodstuffs (groceries). The food aid will touch 313,000 families.
