BDO Unibank Inc. through remittance arm BDO Remit is waiving the remittance fees for donations sent to victims of typhoon Karding (international name: Noru) to help accelerate the flow of financial assistance to the affected areas in the country.
Overseas Filipinos may remit their donations free of service fees from Sept. 30 to Nov. 30, 2022 through BDO Foundation Inc., ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation Inc., GMA Kapuso Foundation Inc. and Philippine Red Cross.
“It is unfortunate that even as Christmas nears, natural calamities are still very much a reality here in the Philippines. Instead of preparing for the holidays, some of us are grieving and picking up the pieces after the onslaught of the super typhoon,” said BDO senior vice president and head of remittance Genie Gloria.
“With this campaign and the generosity from our Kabayans abroad, BDO Remit hopes it can help alleviate the pain somehow,” said Gloria.
BDO Remit has subsidiary offices in several countries overseas that can accommodate the sending of donations through the foundations. BDO Remit has offices in Hong Kong, Macau, Japan, Daly City in the US, Toronto in Canada and London in the UK.
