BDO Unibank—through its remittance arm BDO Remit—is waiving the remittance fees for donations sent to victims of Super 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 September 30 to November 30, 2022 through the following foundations: 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 T. Gloria. “With this campaign and the generosity from our Kabayans abroad, BDO Remit hopes it can help alleviate the pain somehow.”


BDO Remit has subsidiary offices in several countries overseas that can accommodate the sending of donations through these foundations. BDO Remit has offices in Hong Kong, Macau, Japan, Daly City in the USA, Toronto, Canada, and London, UK. For the complete list of addresses, donors can visit, go to Remittance Services and click BDO Remit international network.


“Hopefully, with this, we can encourage more donations from our overseas Filipinos to help those adversely affected by Karding,” Gloria added.


Karding ravaged parts of Luzon last September 25 up to early morning the following day, leaving a trail of destruction, including at least 10 dead and almost P2 billon in agricultural damage, in its wake. Almost 40,000 families were also adversely affected by the typhoon, the 11th tropical cyclone to enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility this year.
