The Board of Executive Directors of BASF SE has decided to contribute €300,000 to relief efforts in the Philippines. With funding from BASF, BASF Stiftung, a charitable foundation based in Germany, will support the disaster relief activities of two international agencies, the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), and UNICEF, as immediate aid to victims of Typhoon Haiyan (also known as Typhoon Yolanda).
The donated funds will be used to deploy relief measures in the Philippines such as emergency food supplies, therapeutic food for children, health kits, water, and hygiene kits.
Dr. Martin Brudermüller, vice chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of BASF SE and responsible for the Asia Pacific region, said: “Following the devastating effects of Typhoon Haiyan, our thoughts are with the victims and their families. Fortunately, all employees of BASF and BASF sites in the Philippines are safe. We aim to support the recovery efforts in the Philippines through rapid relief measures. We also encourage our employees to show their concern through individual donations.”
