Money Transfer Fees Waived for Taal Volcano Donations

Through a press release issued on 27th January 2020, Al Ansari Exchange announced that it has waived money transfer fees for donations sent to relief organizations in the Philippines. This move is part of the company’s efforts to help victims of the Taal Volcano eruption, which caused thousands to flee from their homes and stay temporarily in evacuation centres.

“This initiative reflects our solidarity for the Philippines and its people with the aim to support the ongoing relief efforts and provide assistance to those effected by this crisis,” according to Rashed Al Ansari, General Manager of Al Ansari Exchange.

Cash donations will be sent to relief organizations in the Philippines, namely:

    • BDO Foundation;
    • Philippine Red Cross;
    • GMA Kapuso Foundation; and
    • ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation.
