Like migrant workers from other low-to-middle-income countries, several Gambians also work in foreign countries. A USAID report has said that about a 10th of the total Gambian population works abroad as migrants. They send money to Gambia to offer financial support to their families back home. ACE Money Transfer and Yonna Forex bring exciting Ramadan gifts for these Gambian diasporas every year. This time, the two institutions are giving away free 500ml cooking oil bottles to remittance recipients in the Gambia.
The basic purpose of migrating to another country is to earn a living and support one’s family financially. In most cases, this financial support is confined to fulfilling basic needs, including life essentials, of the particular importance of which is to ensure putting food on the table.
Considering all of this, ACE Money Transfer has launched this year’s exciting campaign in collaboration with Yonna Forex for its valued customers who hail from the Gambia and reside in the UK, Europe, Canada, Australia, and Switzerland.
You can participate in this exciting campaign easily and let your loved ones get a bottle of 500ml cooking oil on receiving every transfer of GMD 3,000/- or more to the Gambia through ACE Money Transfer and Yonna Forex throughout the sacred month of Ramadan.
The Gambian migrants residing in the UK, Europe, Canada, Australia, and Switzerland can participate in this current campaign and enable their family members, who happen to be the recipients of the funds, to get a free bottle of 500ml cooking oil.
As a Gambian migrant, you can help the recipient of your remittances if you make a money transfer to Gambia with ACE Money Transfer to Yonna Forex in the Gambia of GMD 3,000/- or more during the campaign duration.
This exciting campaign starts on the 1st of Ramadan and will last till the end of the holy month. So, you have a total of 29 or 30 days to participate.
In this campaign, the awards include 500ml bottles of cooking oil, and there is no fixed number of bottles. It is only up to you and the number of transactions you make during the campaign duration.
Remember that your transfers from the listed countries above through the channels will help the recipients in the Gambia get their Ramadan gifts. You will have to make every transfer of GMD 3,000/- or more to help recipients get these oil bottles.
One bottle is integrated into every single transfer of the stipulated amount, but it has to be in line with the guidelines stated above.

You will have to make sure that your online money transfer to Gambia is done through ACE Money Transfer and that you send your money to Yonna Forex in the Gambia. This alone will help the recipients get the oil bottles.
During Ramadan, the need for cooking oil increases more than it is at other times of the year. And a simple rule of basic economics says that as the demand for commodities spikes, it can lead to a product shortage in the market, pushing the prices upwards.
Apply this rule to the demand for oil and link it with the acute poverty in the Gambia, and you will understand the logic behind adding cooking oil to the current campaign.
Keeping an eye on this hard fact, the company added this food item to the campaign so that the recipients in the Gambia can, at least, have the cooking oil for free.
The best part of this campaign is that the more transfers you make in the ways explained above, the more oil bottles, 500ml each, your beneficiaries will get.
To facilitate the recipients of the funds in the Gambia, Yonna Forex has stacked innumerable oil bottles in their branches across the entire country.
The biggest reason why ACE Money Transfer has partnered with Yonna Forex in the Gambia is the institution’s vast branch network consisting of 52 branches all across the country. This vast branch network makes commuting easy for customers. It saves them huge commuting costs, which they would essentially incur if the institution had a small network of branches located far away.
Instead of making several transfers of larger amounts, divide your money in smaller chunks of GMD 3,000/- or more each (more here does not mean much more, but reasonably more that you can sustain across the campaign duration) and try to keep sending the amount daily.
Take a quick look at the following few reasons to understand the impetus behind the launch.
The Central Bank of the Gambia (CBG) reported that the inward remittances to the Gambia in 2022 were $712 million.
These economic figures point to a weak economy in which life has become tough for a majority of the Gambian people.
Simply send money to Gambia online with ACE Money Transfer and Yonna Forex and let your loved ones in the Gambia win a bottle of 500ml cooking oil on each transfer of GMD3,000/- or more and get several other benefits like live exchange rates and low fees etc. So hurry up and send money to get as many bottles as possible.
