Western Union joins NGO network to provide money transfers in difficult areas

Western Union Business Solutions and the Bond network have announced a major partnership to provide International NGOs with access to a global payment solutions service to help them get money where it is needed, when it is needed. Along with expertise on all aspects of their international payment activities this major partnership will help NGOs to better understand and address the currency risks and compliance issues that are specific to working internationally. This partnership between one of the world’s largest payment providers and NGO networks will help NGOs to make international payments more easily. Western Union Business Solutions already works with several BOND members including: Oxfam, Amar and Internews.

Tony Crivelli, UK & European Managing Director at Western Union Business Solutions, said:

“We are proud to be partnering with Bond to empower its members to plan and support their international payment processes and needs.

“We already help many NGOs and we know our products deliver a simple and cost effective way of making international payments. NGOs tend to be in remote areas of the world and we understand this can be incredibly challenging when managing currency payments and donations. ”

Michael Wright, Director of Membership and Communications at Bond said:

“As crises unfold across the world including places like Syria and Somalia, the ability to send money to the frontline underpins the ability of NGOs to deliver life-saving aid. Many of our members deal in currencies which are changing all the time - understanding how to manage the risk this exposes them to is vital in order to make sure more of their money is spent on delivering essential projects. Through this partnership with Western Union Business Solutions we can provide NGOs large and small with powerful insights around cash management.”

NGOs that use Western Union NGO GlobalPay are currently able to send payments to over 200 countries and territories, including delivery to mobile wallets in 11 countries. NGOs are supported by a network of trading offices, strategic banking relationships and a global clearing network enabling them to send cross-border payments in more than 135 currencies.

Western Union Business Solutions (NYSE:WU), is a division of the Western Union Company, a leader in global payment services.
