Western Union is committed to helping the communities we serve, and our thoughts are with the people of the Philippines and their loved ones during this time of need.
Western Union will provide support for disaster relief for the families and communities affected by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.
The Western Union Foundation will make a grant of $100,000 to Save the Children, to support the organization’s immediate response activities in the Philippines. This support provides emergency materials, meals and water to disaster victims.
Western Union has also activated a no- transfer fee* money transfer coupon program from participating agent locations in the United States to the Philippines through November 30, 3013.
Use the promotion code: HAIYANRELIEF to send money with no- transfer fee*.
Western Union has also set up a no-fee Payments contribution account promoting the American Red Cross to aid in international relief efforts in the Philippines. You can make a contribution by making a no-fee Payments transaction at participating Western Union Agent locations, for up to $5,000. Donors should include the name “American Red Cross” or the code city, “REDCROSS DC” on the Quick Pay form, and fill in “Philippines Disaster Relief” for the account number.
