HSBC brings mother and son #OneStepCloser to seeing the world

MANILA, Philippines, 5 December 2017 – Mikhail Revita, 29, a Computer Analyst dreams of giving back to his mother by treating her to her first out-of-the-country trip. Just like Mikhail, most of us probably have that goal of giving back to our parents by bringing them to a place they have never visited.

Three years ago with passports in hand, Mikhail and his mom were ready to fulfill this dream only to come face to face with life’s twists and turns that led him to focus on other priorities, putting their mother-son vacation on hold.
