RBC Donates $50,000 To The Canadian Red Cross For Balkans Flood Relief

RBC International Money Transfer fees to be waived

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 and Herzegovina, Serbia and Croatia between

May 15 and July 30, 2014, will be reimbursed. For more information on RBC International Money Transfer, please visit
