Lighting up a village
Light up villages this Diwali #WUDiwali
Over 60 million villagers in India celebrate Diwali in the dark, every year.
Last Diwali, we gave some of them the gift of electricity and changed their lives for better.
This year the tradition continues.
This Diwali, Western Union is giving light to villages in India, that live in darkness.
Send money with Western Union between 1st Oct to 1st Nov and we will contribute up to Rs 100 for every transaction received in India towards lighting up villages*.
Meet others moving money for better
I’m a nanny for children with special needs in Ain Chock. Before that, I lived with a family in Marrakech for 5 years. The children remember me like a mother. The youngest sends me money via Western Union every Eid.
I moved from China to New York when I was nine. Now that I’ve had my son, I understand that my family made a huge sacrifice to give me a better life, and I send them money every month to do the same for them.
My family and I left India in 1990 and settled in the US. I use Western Union to send money to family members back home. It helps us keep connected to our community and heritage.
