UniGroup Relocation Asia Pacific raises funds for typhoon victims

Mar 18, 2014
UniGroup Relocation Asia Pacific has launched a matching fund to help those affected by Typhoon Haiyan.

Super Typhoon Haiyan was one of the strongest storms to hit the Philippines in early November 2013, killing at least 6,000 people and leaving massive destruction.  The company will match donations, dollar for dollar, with its US partner Hilldrup International.


“We were sad and concerned when we heard about the tragedy and wanted to help in any way we could,” said Steve Lewis, Managing Director of UniGroup Relocation Asia Pacific. “Each of our offices in different locations in Asia has donated funds to local charity organisations such as the Red Cross.


The company has donated HK$8,700 to the Hong Kong Red Cross (HKRC) recently. Ms Betty Lau, the Head of International and Relief Service of Hong Kong Red Cross accepted the cheque from Steve Lewis. 


“We would like to thank employees of UniGroup Relocation and Hilldrup International for their generosity and support towards this matching fund. Without them, the matching fund appeal would not be a success,” said Steve Lewis.


The HKRC launched an emergency appeal in Hong Kong from 12 November to 3 December. As of 23 January, 2014, donations amounting to HK$29.7 million had been received from the kindness and generosity of the Hong Kong public. The HKRC also provided an Emergency Tracing Service for people in Hong Kong looking for missing family members in the Philippines, and a Psychological Support Service to those in need, through hotline, psychological education sharing sessions and out-reach services.
