BDO Unibank & the SM Supermalls in partnership with the Department of Migrant Workers (DMW) & the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA), collaborated once again to honor the Overseas Filipinos.
Spearheaded by the DMW & OWWA, Migrant Workers’ Day celebrations were held recently at the DMW office in EDSA-Ortigas Avenue, Mandaluyong City, SM North EDSA & SM City Bacolod, wherein BDO & SM Supermalls brought fun & laughter to the occasion together with comedians MC & Lassy.
The migrant workers were treated to various fun & entertaining activities, including games & prizes as well as informative talks on financial education by BDO representatives & how BDO can help them reach their financial goals.
“We at BDO recognize the important role of Overseas Filipinos–our Kabayans—in providing a better life for their families through the sacrifices they make,” said BDO Remittance SVP & Head Genie T. Gloria. “By ensuring the timely and seamless delivery of remittances to their beneficiaries back home, providing relevant financial solutions suited to their needs, as well as easy access to the other products & services of the bank, we are helping them provide a better future for their families. BDO has consistently supported the plight of our Kabayans in tandem with the DMW & OWWA.”
For Joaquin San Agustin, SVP for Marketing of SM Supermalls, “The collaboration of BDO & SM Supermalls serves as a tribute to the Overseas Filipinos & their families. As our beloved customers, we would like to make them happy. This is our own way of recognizing the sacrifices of our OFWs. Long live our modern day heroes!”
