MANILA, Philippines — BDO Remit, the remittance service brand of BDO Unibank, has waived the remittance fee on donations for typhoon victims from overseas Filipinos coursed through different foundations.

The zero remittance fee for these donations started last Nov. 4 and will last until Dec. 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. Hopefully, with this, we can encourage more donations from our overseas Filipinos to those adversely affected by the recent typhoons,” said BDO senior vice president and remittance head Genie Gloria.

Overseas Filipinos may remit their donations free of service fees via any BDO Remit office abroad to BDO Unibank’s corporate social responsibility arm, BDO Foundation Inc., the Philippine Red Cross, GMA Kapuso Foundation Inc. and ABS-CBN’s Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation Inc.

BDO Remit has nine subsidiary offices outside the Philippines. In Asia, BDO Remit has offices in Macau, Hong Kong and Japan. In North America, BDO Remit is located in Daly City in the US and  in Toronto, Canada while in Europe, BDO Remit has presence in the UK.

Meanwhile, BDO Foundation, in coordination with BDO and BDO Network Bank branches, has started sending relief packs containing food and drinking water to families hit by Typhoon Ulysses.

This is the latest disaster response initiative BDO Foundation has undertaken. Earlier, it has distributed relief goods to more than 36,000 families hit by Typhoons Pepito, Quinta, and Rolly.

BDO Foundation has already distributed relief packs to almost 11,000 affected families in Albay, Camarines Sur and Catanduanes, the provinces hit hardest by the super typhoon.

In line with its disaster response advocacy, BDO Foundation immediately sent relief packs containing food, rice and drinking water to more than 14,000 families stricken by Pepito and Quinta in Bulacan, Pampanga, Nueva Ecija and Quezon—provinces hit hardest by the typhoons. The corporate citizenship initiative was made possible by officers of BDO and BDO Network Bank branches, who helped gather beneficiary information and identify barangays that needed assistance. Logistical support was provided by local government units and partner non-governmental organizations.
