Banco Popular donates RD$60M to those affected by the flooding in Dominican Republic
Santo Domingo.- The Dominican Popular Bank announced a donation of RD$60 million to support communities and families impacted by the recent tropical disturbance and trough. The aid, beginning from November 18, will be distributed via several channels including the Emergency Operations Center (COE), the archdiocese of Santo Domingo, and dioceses in San Pedro de Macorís, Baní, San Juan de la Maguana, and Barahona.
