October 2013 / e-newsletter

ST Telemedia responded to the massive devastation caused by the ferocious Typhoon Haiyan/ Yolanda in the Philippines with a donation of one million Philippine pesos (approximately S$28,500) towards relief efforts of Sagip Kapamilya, an emergency humanitarian assistance programme of ABS-CBN Foundation. The catastrophic typhoon, a category-5 super typhoon and possibly the most powerful ever to hit the country, smashed into central Philippine islands with tsunami-like storm on 8 November. According to recent official government estimates, the typhoon has claimed close to 4,000 lives and affected more than 10 million in 44 of the Philippine’s 80 provinces. ST Telemedia’s contribution will go into providing food, medical supplies and other emergency assistance to affected people and communities.
