Canon aids relief activities following Typhoon Sendong (Washi)

16 Jan

(From L-R) Canon Marketing (Phils.), Inc. Supply Chain Management, GA, IT and CAT Director Richard Ordonez, Vice President and Imaging Communications Products Division Director Bong Serevo, Philippine National Red Cross Membership and Fund Drive Acting Manager Rene Santillan, CiTech Corporate Promotion Section Manager Elaine Co, and Consumer Systems Products Division Director Vinchy Sanchez during the donation turn-over. The donation will be used to assist and support Typhoon Sendong victims in Northern Mindanao.

Typhoon Sendong (Washi), which swept through the southern Philippines in December, has caused extensive damage due to record-setting heavy rainfall and landslides across the region.

True to its corporate philosophy of Kyosei or living for the common good, Canon extended much needed help to typhoon stricken areas in Northern Mindanao.

Canon Inc. is providing aid for victims of the typhoon and support through recovery efforts in the affected regions with a donation of 5 million yen (Php2.8M)  through Japan Red Cross Society.  Locally, Canon Marketing (Phils.), Inc. (CMPI) has activated its disaster relief program called Canon Project Rebuild to gather monetary and in-kind donations from employees.

Along with Canon Information Technology Inc., CMPI donated an additional Php 300,000 through the Philippine National Red Cross as corporate contribution to the relief efforts.  These donations will be of aid to some 300,000 homeless families in the affected provinces of Cagayan de Oro, Iligan City, and Zamboanga del Norte.

    Nice post. Thanks for sharing. I hope that preventative measures can be put in place soon. One thing that can be done which costs nothing is each individual take responsibility for their garbage and put it where it belongs instead of throwing it all over the streets, rivers, and everywhere else.
