In the struggle against coronaviruses, OTP Bank donated a delivery vehicle worth over 3 million dinars to The Torlak Institute. Knowing what challenges the entire health system of our country faced, the bank additionally donated a total of 2,650,000 dinars to the General Hospital in Sremska Mitrovica, Clinical Center in Niš, Institute of Oncology and Radiology of Serbia – Children’s ward, General Hospital in Subotica and the city of Valjevo, which raises funds for local health institutions. Also, OTP Bank has made it easier for its clients to donate funds to an official RFZO account.
In such difficult circumstances, the delivery vehicle for the Torlak Institute will play a significant role in the transport of COVID-19 virus tests, thus directly helping to results deliver faster and more efficiently. The vehicle is fully customized for these needs and has accessories that include built-in thermal insulation, a cooling device and a thermographer which records the temperature. Also, deserve gratitude and partners of OTP Bank and OTP Leasing who contributed to this donation – Renault Nissan Serbia and Reno Sava.
The Bank also provided financial support to the Institute and hospitals in Sremska Mitrovica, Niš, Subotica and Valjevo to improve the general working conditions and to obtain the necessary medical and protective equipment.
Solidarity is now of immeasurable importance, which is why OTP Bank has called on its clients to support the health care system with their monetary donation if they are able. In order to facilitate the process of donating customers, the bank has included the RFZO account in predefined templates as part of its e-banking application.
In order to protect clients and employees, the Bank has been taking prescribed measures by the World Health Organization since the start of the pandemic. For more responsible handling during the struggle with coronavirus, the bank refers its customers to contactless and digital services available to them 24/7 that they can use from their homes. For all urgent requests, OTP Bank branches will remain available on weekdays with adjusted working hours from 9 am to 2 pm, while the contact centre is available from 9 am to 3 pm.
