SINGAPORE, June 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- In 2020, those in developing countries were impacted the hardest by COVID-19, and many struggled with poverty and hunger. Ample Transfers, a Singapore-based cross-border payments company serving migrant workers for over 2 decades, is donating the remittance fees needed to send funds to India. This contribution will help to secure 3 months of food for two at-risk communities and their on-ground volunteers.

Last year, Care Channels International (CCI), a long-term corporate client of Ample Transfers, raised several rounds of donations and needed to quickly and safely send those funds overseas. Ample Transfers supported the initiative by donating the remittance fees to help hundreds of beneficiaries over 5 months.

This year, Ample Transfers continues to support CCI and has committed to assist the sending of financial aid to the two greatly-suffering communities: The dumpsite scavengers and the transgender community, who struggle to earn a living. Being rejected not just by family but also by banks, their state of exclusion makes even everyday tasks, like banking money for food purchases, difficult.

Ample Transfers believes in inclusivity and equal rights for all humans, and empathises with the difficulties and discrimination faced by these individuals. In line with its mission to serve the banked and the underbanked, Ample Transfers will continue its contributions to support over a hundred of these direct relief recipients and on-ground volunteers.

Providing migrant workers with solutions to transmit money has been our bread and butter for over twenty years. We have been working with CCI since 2013; Now that a huge storm has come upon us, we believe that providing this little bit of relief for these communities is the least we could do. The overcast is much darker in some areas, and we're blessed that we reside in Singapore. We are eager to help where we can for our fellow humans - and hope that the sky is not only brighter, but just as bright everywhere, soon. – Matthew Yap, CEO of Ample Transfers.
