PayMaya has raised more than PHP 7.8 million in donations through its digital payment channels a week after launching the #OneAgainstCOVID19 initiative.
PayMaya, along with other companies and non-profit organizations such as the Philippine Red Cross, UNICEF, Caritas Manila, OXFAM Pilipinas, and the UP PGH Foundation to name a few, have worked together to reach the amount.
With the enhanced quarantine, those who want to help in the fight against the virus can do so with the PayMaya app. Even those overseas can donate and contribute to the #OneAgainstCOVID19 efforts through the their end-to-end platforms.
“The response we have gotten just a week after launch has been tremendous, which only highlights not just the magnanimity but also the creativity of Filipinos in responding to this crisis, aided by technology. We will continue to support consumers, businesses, communities, government agencies, and humanitarian organizations in this united effort during this pandemic by providing the most convenient and inclusive means of sending monetary support,” said Orlando Vea, Founder and CEO of PayMaya.
To date, people with credit, debit, and prepaid cards, as well as PayMaya accounts, can donate via the website (http://donate.paymaya.com) or the PayMaya app to the following organizations: Philippine Red Cross, UNICEF, PGH Medical Foundation, Caritas Manila, OXFAM Pilipinas, Philippine Business for Social Progress, Philippine Disaster Resilience Foundation, Kaya Natin! Movement for Good Governance & Ethical Leadership, Ronald McDonald House of Charities Phlippines, YesPinoy Foundation, Alagang Kapatid Foundation, PLDT-Smart Foundation, Rock Ed Philippines, UTownPen Foundation, #nowheretogobutUP Foundation, and the #UniTENTweStandPH initiative of actress Angel Locsin.
PayMaya is encouraging everyone to send money, pay their bills, or do bank transfers through the app instead of going out of the house. Users can also send money to anyone in the country using their PayMaya accounts by doing a Send Money transaction to a Smart Padala by PayMaya center.
You can also transfer money using your PayMaya accounts to over 40 banks through InstaPay.
