Apple Donates $1.6 Million To China Earthquake Relief Efforts

Apple Donates $1.6 Million To China Earthquake Relief Efforts

Apple have announced they made a donation of $1.6 Million to help with the relief effort after the Chinese earthquake last month.


The quake killed over 600 people and caused widespread damage with hundreds of thousands of people left homeless.

Apple CEO Tim Cook sent. Personal message to employees and company executives expressing his sympathy for all those caught up in the disaster.

 

Team,

Our deepest sympathies go out to the people of China’s Yunnan Province, which was struck by a devastating 6.5-magnitude earthquake over the weekend. Nearly 600 people died and over 2400 were injured in the worst earthquake to hit the region in 100 years. Rescuers have evacuated 230,000 people who are now displaced from their homes. The road to Longtoushan Township, the epicenter of the quake, has been blocked by landslides, making the rescue effort there even more challenging. Apple is eager to help. We are making a financial donation in support of the work of Mercy Corps and CFPA (China Foundation for Poverty Alleviation) to get supplies and relief to those affected by the earthquake and to help them through the process of healing and recovery. The tragedy in Yunnan Province is on the minds of many in the Apple community. Apple has over 6500 employees in China and Hong Kong as well as a growing developer community and deep ties to the workers in our supply chain who make Apple products. In this time of tragedy, our thoughts are with the victims and their families.

Tim

 

Apple have not been shy in their donations for natural disasters with the company donating another substantial amount to earthquake victims last year and also making donations to typhoon and hurricane victims in the US and on the Asian continent.
