As one of the financial institutions in Indonesia, BCA also assumed its role in distributing aid to medical workers as the frontline of Covid-19. For this reason, we are here today distributing aid to Lombok. We strive to distribute aid evenly throughout Indonesia. This serves as a form of our commitment to helping the government in handling Covid-19,” said Indrawanto.
Since last March, BCA has consistently provided assistance to various parties in effort to assist the handling of Covid-19 in Indonesia. A number of ventilators and other medical equipments had been donated to several hospitals including RSPAD Gatot Soebroto, RSUPN Dr Cipto Mangunkusumo, RS Eka Hospital BSD and RS St. Carolus Jakarta.

Let’s break the chain of Covid-19 spread by implementing government order that includes social & physical distancing, work from home,” Indrawanto concluded.
