Sai Sai’s fans and all app users will be able to donate to support COVID-19 relief efforts and all funds raised from this birthday show will go towards the COVID-19 Relief Fund and related areas.

As a long-term partner of uab bank, we are happy to be a part of this wonderful cause and will waive all our processing fees for donations towards the COVID-19 relief fund. We hope this will encourage others to donate generously.” said Pyay Nyein, Director of 2C2P

We hope that this joint commitment from 2C2P and uab bank would inspire change and see other institutions waiving the fees for donations.”
