“I once again invited Binusian colleagues to participate in helping. The assistance and contribution of our colleagues, regardless of value, is very important and meaningful for those who are struggling to care for our brothers and sisters. For colleagues who wish to participate in our aid efforts they can donate at BCA Account – 527 174 2500 on behalf of Yay Binus / Binusian Care,” said Stephen Santoso – Chief Operating Officer.

For every Rupiah donated by BINUSIAN partners, it will be doubled and matched by BINUS with 100% of this fund to be used in the fight against COVID-19.
