May 4, 2015 – Anyone wishing to send money to Nepal will not be paying any transfer charges for the whole month of May.
The offer is available to customers remitting funds through Xpress Money’s outlets in the UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman and Qatar.
According to the company, which announced the waiver of transfer fees on Sunday, the move is to express solidarity with the victims of the earthquake that hit the country recently.
The offer is valid from May 1st to May 31st, 2015.
The company is also looking at other options to send aid, including medicines and first aid kits, to the earthquake victims and their families.
Employees of Xpress Money are also contributing cash separately and the money collected will be turned over to a non-government organization that is directly working with the people of Nepal.
“The Nepal earthquake has impacted the lives of millions of people living in the country and around the world. Nothing that we do can fill the void that the human losses have created. However, we are hoping to bring some relief to those affected through these humble initiatives,” said Sudhesh Giriyan, COO of Xpress Money.
“We pray that the survivors gather enough strength and courage, to start afresh and move on with their lives.”
