Yangon, 7th April 2020 – uab bank, a leading bank in Myanmar in partnership with global payments platform 2C2P announced today that they will be waiving all fees on Sai Sai Pay app in order to support the COVID-19 prevention effort in Myanmar.
Sai Sai Pay – the First Celebrity App creating a digital lifestyle ecosystem to support the local music & film industry as well as raise funds for COVID-19 efforts – was launched on 4th April 2020 by renowned Myanmar Celebrity Sai Sai Kham Leng in partnership with uab bank.
On 10th April 2020, the popular annual “Sai Sai Birthday Show” will be live-streamed on the Sai Sai Pay app in view of the global COVID-19 pandemic. Sai Sai has chosen to make the broadcast free to his fans and the public during this difficult time and is using his birthday show to raise funds for the fight against COVID-19. 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.
“When we learnt that Sai Sai is using his birthday show to raise funds for COVID-19 relief efforts by inviting donations from the public through Sai Sai Pay, we immediately jumped on board to offer our help. 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.
Christopher Loh MD & CEO of uab bank said “We are thrilled that our partner 2C2P shares the same vision of simplifying payments and transfers, and in doing good for the people of Myanmar. Funds transfers on uab mobile banking has always been free and likewise on our newly launched Sai Sai Pay. Particularly for donations, we believe that such fees should be waived. We hope that this joint commitment from 2C2P and uab bank would inspire change and see other institutions waiving the fees for donations.”

I am so glad and thankful that 2C2P has joined us for this meaningful cause and waive their fees for the COVID-19 donations. Together, we hope our efforts and contributions would help the people of Myanmar in the fight against COVID-19.”
