Aside from the different BDO Remit offices, the bank’s global remit partners are also receiving cash donations through Remitly, Small World, WorldRemit, Azimo, UAE Exchange Centre, and Xpress Money. However, regular remittance charges apply.
“BDO is serving as bridge to this by waiving regular remittance fees on donations sent through BDO Remit offices. It’s the bank’s way of making sure all donations, every centavo, are spent to buy relief goods. In times like this, you just want to help any which way you can,” said Genie Gloria, head of remittance of BDO. – Rappler.com
