To make it easier for overseas Filipinos to provide financial assistance to thousands of victims of the Mt. Taal eruption, BDO Unibank Inc. has waived its remittance fees on cash donations that will be sent through the different BDO Remit offices abroad.
BDO has extensive remittance coverage across the globe, with overseas remittance offices and partners across Asia, Europe, North America, and the Middle East.
Cash donations sent through BDO Remit offices will then be coursed through different foundations, namely BDO Foundation, ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation Inc., GMA Kapuso Foundation Inc. and Philippine Red Cross.
The remittance free campaign on cash donations to Taal victims runs from January 14 to March 31, 2020.
“We know overseas Filipinos, by the very nature of every Filipino, would love to help their kababayans in the Philippines who were most affected by the Mt. Taal eruption through cash donations. BDO is serving as bridge to this by waiving regular remittance fees on donations sent through BDO remit offices,” said Genie Gloria, senior vice president and head of remittance of BDO.
