BDO Unibank and SM Supermalls joined forces to honor our brave and hardworking Overseas Filipinos in various locations during Migrant Workers’ Day. The celebrations, which took part at the Department of Migrant Workers office in Mandaluyong, SM North Edsa and SM City Bacolod and which were sponsored by BDO and SM Supermalls, saw the lively participation of comedians MC and Lassy. There were games and giveaways during the events as well as sharing of financial education by BDO representatives. The BDO representatives also shared how the bank can help OFWs achieve their financial goals.
“Pinapahalagahan ng BDO ang Overseas Filipinos dahil naiintidihan namin ang sakripisyo nila para sa pamilya. Kaya naman sinisiguro namin ang mabilis at maaasahang remittance para sa beneficiaries nila, pagbibigay ng financial lessons or tips at access sa aming mga produkto nang sa gayon ay matulungan namin sila na mabigyan ng magandang kinabukasan ang kanilang pamilya. Laging naka-suporta ang
BDO sa kapakanan ng mga kabayan natin at nagiging posible ito sa tulong ng DMW & OWWA”, said BDO Remittance SVP & Head Genie Gloria.
Meanwhile, according to Joaquin San Agustin, SVP for Marketing of SM Supermalls, “Ang collaboration ng BDO at SM Supermalls ay isang pagpupugay sa ating mga Overseas Filipinos at kanilang pamilya. Bilang mga minamahal naming mga customers, gusto namin silang maging masaya. Ito ang aming munting paraan upang maipakita ang pagkilala sa mga naging sakripisyo ng ating mga OFWs. Mabuhay ang ating mga modern Filipino heroes!”
