TORONTO, May 23, 2014 /CNW/ - The RBC Foundation announced today a
$50,000 donation to the Canadian Red Cross to support relief efforts
for those affected by the worst floods to hit the Balkans in living
memory. RBC has requested that its donation be directed where it is
needed most for emergency relief which can include food, clean water,
shelter and medical aid.
"The impact of this disaster is enormous and has been devastating to
thousands of people and their communities," said Gord Nixon, CEO, RBC,
"We are committed to helping the people of the Balkans recover and
rebuild from these powerful floods. We are proud to partner with the
Red Cross in support of their relief efforts in aiding those affected
by this devastating event."
To further support those affected by the recent flooding, clients can
securely send money to family and friends overseas by going to RBC
Online Banking and making a money transfer through RBC International
Money Transfer. Any fees incurred for remittance transfers to Bosnia
