Commemorating a full year of RSDC WA volunteers’ efforts and strengthening partnership between Bank Danamon and the hospital
Jakarta, 2 March 2021. The spirit of volunteerism is very meaningful amid efforts to cope with COVID-19 which is still spreading in Indonesia. PT Bank Danamon Indonesia Tbk (Danamon) took the initiative to recognize the contributions of volunteers who are at the 'frontlines' of the fight against Covid-19 at Wisma Atlet COVID-19 Emergency Hospital (RSDC WA) in Kemayoran, Central Jakarta.
As a token of appreciation, Bank Danamon Sustainability Finance Head Abdul Hadi donated 1,000 T-shirts to Wisma Atlet RSDC Public Relations Coordinator Lt.kol. Kes drg. Muh Arifin, Sp. Ort.
"The COVID-19 pandemic is not over yet as it still affects numerous communities nationwide. Bank Danamon thanks and appreciates the selfless efforts of those who help in the fight against COVID-19, particularly the Wisma Atlet COVID-19 Emergency Hospital volunteers. They continue to play an important role in ensuring each patient receives adequate medical treatment. This symbolic donation represents Danamon's solidarity with the struggle against the pandemic, as well as to encourage the volunteers. This donation coincides with RSDC’s one year constant fight against the pandemic and the WA volunteers’ efforts to break the coronavirus’ chain of transmission," said Danamon Sustainability Finance Head Abdul Hadi.
This donation aligns with the Social Pillar aspect of Bank Danamon's social investment program which alleviate conditions in times of disaster. In addition to the donation, Bank Danamon also formed a synergy and partnership with RSDC WA particularly through education webinars focusing on proper handling of COVID-19 for employees.
Bank Danamon remains committed to play an active role in supporting government programs that deal with COVID-19. Previously, Bank Danamon distributed more than 11,000 Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for health workers, and BP Jamsostek work accident and death insurance to 10,000 Covid-19 volunteers in coordination with BNPB. Together with MUFG, Bank Danamon assisted Japan-based Indonesian students affected by COVID-19. Through BenihBaik and Anak Bangsa Bisa Foundation (YABB), Bank Danamon also donated food supplies to Grab and Gojek online drivers in the form of cash donations amounting to more than Rp.1 billion.
