ABU DHABI, UAE, August 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
On 3 consecutive Fridays & Sundays before Eid - the day that marks the end of the month of Ramadan, Xpress Money the world's most trusted instant money transfer brand distributed packets of dates and water bottles outside 3 mosques in Malaysia: Masjid Surau - Kotaraya, Masjid Surau - Brickfield & Masjid Jamek after prayer.
Breaking the day-long fast with dates and water has special religious significance because it was a ritual that was followed by the Prophet. As a tribute to our brethren observing sawm across the world, and a prelude to the joyous occasion of Eid, Xpress Money chose to give back to the community, through this thoughtful gesture.
Sudhesh Giriyan, Vice President of Xpress Money Services said, "We always try and create every promotion and marketing initiative with the intention to convey the message that Xpress Money cares about its customers and their needs. This Ramadan, we have conducted several such marketing promotions to countries like Pakistan & Bangladesh, for our loyal customers."
Malaysia received $1.6bn in 2010 through inward remittances. Malaysia is also a strong send corridor, and stands as the 11th largest send country in the remittance industry. This is because of the presence of the large immigrant population of about 4 million from countries like Indonesia, Philippines, Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Vietnam, Thailand, Pakistan and more.
Xpress Money started its operations in Malaysia in 2007 and has since grown rapidly with over 100 locations. Their wide agent network include names like Unique Change, Prabhu Money Transfer, Q-Remit, IME and UAE Exchange to name a few.
