Myanmar Times — One hundred percent of donated funds will go to two local NGOs:Ayeyarwady Foundation and Hero Foundation, according to the company. People can visit any Red Dot location to give money, in denominations from K500 to K10,000. So far, the initiative has brought in more than K2.6 million. The firm has also been offering free mobile phone top-up in the wake of the devastating flooding.
Shop owners in every township of Myanmar’s three largest cities have set up Red Dot terminals – machines that act as payment gateways allowing customers to top up mobile phones without scratch cards. Based in downtown Yangon, Red Dot offers technology and services that can streamline top-up sales and management for vendors, which is currently a clunky and involved process, according to Mr Whelan.
