India / 31st August 2020 / ZEXPRWIRE / ABBC Foundation, a Dubai-based fintech organization, carried out its initiative to help people withstand the global impact of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Starting out in Korea, ABBC has extended its noble cause in India.
Last August 24, 2020, the ABBC community volunteers reached out to the Kalanipakkam Village located in the Thiruvannamalai District. From a population of over 3,000 people, the ABBC team focused on providing assistance to 100 families that needed their help the most.
Children, people with disabilities, widows, and unemployed individuals were able to receive a bag weighing up to 10kgs. each filled with household essentials such as rice, oil, a variety of dals, and other food necessities.
To ensure that no one gets left behind, the team organized the charity drive smoothly by distributing tokens two days before handing out the relief goods. Moreover, to raise awareness regarding the COVID-19 situation, ABBC volunteers educated the people about social distancing and common symptoms and precautions against the disease.
Jason Daniel Paul Philip, CEO of ABBC, humbly shared his joy on the success of this act of goodwill:
“I am glad that we were able to extend our donation campaign to India. With an alarming increase in cases in the country, we wanted to spread hope and positivity in the most beneficial way.”
Even though CEO Jason was not able to join the volunteers physically upon visiting the area, he was able to send his encouragement through words. In return, the families expressed their appreciation to the whole team for their heartwarming support and dedication in visiting their village and offering support at this difficult time.
ABBC is known not only for its advocacy of becoming the ‘future of payment security,’ but also for its passion for philanthropic activities. For this reason, ABBC’s COVID-19 Donation Campaign was initiated in April and has collected a total amount of 540,921 ABBC.
In line with this, a 70 million KRW donation was given to South Korean childcare facilities and hundreds of supplies were delivered to numerous communities in the Philippines.
The company is committed to sharing the love and care for the people who are gravely affected in this pandemic. CEO Jason further added that South Korea, the Philippines, and India are just the beginning. “We will focus more on developing countries as we continue our campaign, staying true to our corporate social responsibility (CSR),” he stated.
