Donates 20 million kyats for the sustenance of minors and senior citizens in Yangon and Mandalay .

9th  June 2022, Yangon, Myanmar – Farmers Development Bank – Mandalay, an aspiring digitalfirst, SME-focused commercial bank in Myanmar understands the importance of compassion and kindness in the society we live in today. Therefore, to reinstate the company’s values and fulfill responsibilities towards the Myanmar people, FDB Bank – Mandalay launched the “Share with Love” program to provide relief funds and aid communities in need.  

Under the “Share with Love” program, FDB Bank – Mandalay has collaborated with Hnin Zi Gone Home for the Aged and Khine Hnin Wai Children Center in Yangon for helping the most vulnerable sections of the community. The company has donated 5,000,000 MMK worth of rice, cooking oil and medical care kits to the nursing home and also provided 5,000,000 MMK worth of milk powder, diapers and other necessities to the children center. In Mandalay, FDB Bank has joined hands with YGW Orphanage to provide 10,000,000 MMK worth of similar care packages and necessities. In the future, this program will be extended to remote areas of Myanmar in order to improve the living standards of the communities. 

In order to express appreciation to the staff and volunteers of the centers, FDB Bank – Mandalay organized a spin-and-win program for them with a variety of gifts. Additionally, staff of the bank and the children at Khine Hnin Wai Children Center and YGW orphanage spent quality time with many fun activities. 

“After the pandemic and ongoing economic crisis, people are finding it difficult to meet the basic needs of daily life. During this time, it’s important for us to rise to the needs of people in Myanmar, and thus, we are making collaborative measures with frontline non-profit organizations, employees and Excellent Fortune Foundation (EFF Foundation) to relieve their worries with our “Share with Love” relief program. We are aware of people’s hardships so we pledge to support them in every possible way we can. We also encourage the public to be part of this noble cause. Every participation in any form counts no matter whether it is a donation, volunteering work or just a click of the share button of our “Share with Love” post. We want to spread love and care and lay the foundation of our annual program “Share with Love”. It’s a small but significant effort in a grand scheme of helping communities.” said U Win Lwin, CEO of FDB Bank – Mandalay. 

Sharing the same beliefs, Khine Hnin Wai, Founder of Khine Hnin Wai Children Center – Yangon, said “I am grateful for the support and enthusiastic donation from FDB Bank – Mandalay. On behalf of Khine Hnin Wai Children Center, I would like to thank the bank for their contribution that has benefitted young children with their daily needs for food and sanitization. At the center, we always strive to improve the lives of children and bring meaningful changes to society. I am looking forward to a future partnership with FDB Bank – Mandalay as we believe in serving society.”
