In response to Typhoon Haiyan, the devastating natural disaster that occurred in the Philippines last week, many aid organizations are taking immediate strides to help victims. OneBeacon is working to support these relief efforts by contributing to two of the major organizations involved.
We are proud to donate $10,000 to support the purchase of food, clothing, and other supplies for the Philippine Red Cross, which will deliver items to impacted areas via ship transport on a weekly basis for the foreseeable future.
Additionally, the OneBeacon Charitable Trust donated $10,000 to support the Philippine-area efforts of the Salvation Army World Services Office.
We continue to keep the Philippine people in our thoughts and prayers as they work to recover, and we are proud to support the organizations providing relief.
