Update on the SGVF Calamity Fund
Two months after Typhoon Yolanda devastated the Visayas region, donations to the SGV Foundation (SGVF) Calamity Fund from our EY family continue to arrive. Aside from the previously reported donations from EY offices in Dubai, Thailand and Korea as well as the EY P&G Team, SGVF has also received donations and pledges from EY Malaysia managing partner Sang Hoe Chow, EY China Foundation Ltd. (a charity representing Hong Kong and Mainland China), EY Taiwan, EY Hamburg partner Frank Broetzmann and EY Cologne partner Gerd Stürz. The SGVF Calamity Fund was initially used for food sponsorship for DSWD volunteers and financial assistance for SGV staff and SGVF scholars directly affected by the typhoon. In addition, the SGVF also made donations to the Andres Soriano Foundation, ABS-CBN Foundation, PLDT-Smart Foundation, Metrobank Foundation, Synergeia Foundation and Children’s Hour Foundation.
