Bank Mandiri Donates Rp 1.215 billion to develop health facilities in Surabaya

Surabaya, 14 September 2014 – Bank Mandiri has provided assistance worth a total of Rp 1.215 billion to develop health facilities in Surabaya, East Java. The assistance was presented by ​​Bank Mandiri Senior EVP Internal Audit, Bondan T. Riyani, to Surabaya Mayor Tri Rismaharini during the Mandiri Nusantara Carnival event in the East Parking Lot of Plaza Surabaya on Sunday (14 Sept).

Of the total assistance provided, Rp 862.5 million is earmarked for the procurement of stem cell equipment for the development of regenerative medicine at Sutomo General Hospital, while Rp 350 million will be used for the procurement of a water tanker truck for the Surabaya City Government’s Parks Agency * .

Riyani said that the assistance would complement existing health facilities and help to improve the quality of life in Surabaya.

“This assistance is also a realization of the bank’s commitment to improving access to healthcare for people of all walks of life throughout Indonesia,” Riyani explained.

In addition to the presentation of the medical assistance, the Mandiri Nusantara Festival also featured a traditional culinary festival involving 17 food & beverage outlets, including Bebek Sinjay, Sop Buntut Gelora Pancasila, and Lontong Balap Pak Gendut. During the event, all snacks were available at a discount of 25% if purchased using a Mandiri credit, debit or e-money card. The event was enlivened by the appearance of singer Raisa and futsal matches between teams of elementary school students.

This marks the second time that a Mandiri Nusantara Carnival has been held in Surabaya, after the inaugural event was held last year. “Through this carnival, we want to provide our customers and other visitors with first-hand experience of how easy it is to conduct direct cashless transactions,” Riyani explained.

*We say above that the entire Rp 1.215 billion is for health services. But this is not a health service.
