Celebrate International Day of Family Remittances with Mama Money

Mama Money looks forward to celebrating International Day of Family Remittances this June and is proud to offer low-cost transfers that you can rely on so you can easily send money home to your loved ones each and every month. 

What is the International Day of Family Remittances?

The International Day of Family Remittances (IDFR) was first adopted by the United Nations General Assembly and has since become an important event recognized around the world. The day is celebrated each year on the 16th of June and highlights the important role migrants’ contributions play in supporting their families back home. 


What impact does remittances have on families living abroad? 

Did you know that remittances directly impact around one billion people each year as either senders or receivers? 

It’s been reported that around 200 million migrant workers located in over 40 countries around the world send remittances to 800 million relatives located in low- and middle- income countries. This means that the money transferred through remittances helps to make up an average of 60% of household incomes.
