Xoom Waives All Transaction Fees for Haiti in Wake of Hurricane Matthew
By Julian King, CMO, Xoom
Reports indicate Hurricane Matthew has been the worst storm to hit Haiti in more than 50 years. The Caribbean island has struggled to rebuild since an earthquake in 2010 and Hurricane Sandy in 2012. According to the United Nations, today more than 350,00 people are in need of humanitarian assistance and 2,000 children have been evacuated for safety and protection.
As the island once again rebuilds, we can come together and extend our support. From today through October 15, 2016, we will waive all money transfer and top-up fees for Xoom services to Haiti. We’ve partnered with C.A.M and Unitransfer to provide cash pick-up and local bank deposit. Additionally, our top up service will help you to instantly send airtime credit to prepaid mobile phones with Digicel and Natcom.
We’re hoping this fee-free service will help families stay connected and serve as a vital lifeline of help during this difficult time. We encourage you to extend your support to the people of Haiti.
