On September 30th 2009, Padang, West Sumatra was struck by a 7.6 magnitude earthquake, which destroyed thousands of lives, buildings and homes. The catastrophic earthquake left more than 1,100 people dead and approximately 1.2 million people homeless.
PT Bank BNP Paribas Indonesia and BNP Paribas Singapore came together to lend a helping hand to the Padang earthquake victims by donating to a solidarity fund set up by the Indonesian French Chamber of Commerce (IFCCI). These funds will be delivered directly to the disaster area and used to renovate and reconstruct the affected areas.
Together with the IFFCI, our efforts helped the victims recover from this unfortunate natural disaster
