Wells Fargo (WFC) is temporarily waiving all fees on remittances to the Philippines to make it easier for customers to send aid to flood victims in the Southeast Asian country.
The fee waiver began Monday and continues through Sept. 15, the $1.4 trillion-asset company announced Wednesday. Customers can use Wells' ExpressSend service to transfer money to friends and family at more than 6,400 locations in the Philippines.
"Our hearts go out to all those who have been impacted by the floods," Daniel Ayala, who heads the company's global remittance services group, said in a press release. "We're working closely with our remittance network members in the Philippines to help our customers and team members support their families and friends as they begin the recovery process."
The only special requirement is that customers complete the first transfer in person at a Wells Fargo branch.
Wells Fargo offers international remittance services in Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean, South America and Asia.
