Tanoto Foundation Held Devotion of Love in Deli Serdang, North Sumatera
Friday, 9 October 2015 – Caring for each other, regardless of age, is a responsibility of many parties, including the private sector. The benefit of social care will be experienced by the public in general, especially when the activities are held continually.
This concept is also practiced by Tanoto Foundation, in the event of Bakti Kasih ( Devotion of Love) in the Putra Bangsa Berbudi School in Jl. Kebun Sayur/ Bayur, Deli Serdang District, North Sumatera. The annual event is also held in the memory of the passing of Mrs. Anisah Tanoto.

In this occasion, Mr. Hermanto Tanoto, along with the representative of the family and Tanoto Foundation, presented the support to students and staff of Putra Bangsa Berbudi School, as well to the Mahasampatti Monastery, and residents of the area.
