BDO Unibank’s remittance service, BDO Remit, removed the remittance fee on donations sent to different foundations for typhoon victims from Filipinos overseas.
The zero remittance fee for these donations will last until December 31, 2020.
“The year 2020 has been very challenging. But we have to recover, and we have to be there for our kababayans who are in dire need of help,” said Senior Vice President and Remittance Head Genie Gloria.
“Hopefully, with this, we can encourage more donations from our overseas Filipinos to those adversely affected by the recent typhoons,” he added.
Overseas Filipinos may send their donations to BDO Foundation Inc., the Philippine Red Cross, GMA Kapuso Foundation, and ABS-CBN’s Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation Inc.
BDO Foundation also started sending relief packs containing food and drinking water to victims of Typhoons Ulysses and Rolly.
