Japanese global apparel retailer UNIQLO will donate $1 million (about P48 million) in aid to the families affected by Typhoon Rolly and Typhoon Ulysses.
The donation will be coursed through the SM Foundation, an entity that manages the CSR activities of the SM Group – the management partner of UNIQLO in the Philippines.
The donation will be used to provide emergency food supplies and rebuild flooded housing, as well as build preventative infrastructure in areas susceptible to flooding.
Furthermore, UNIQLO will also donate 300,000 AIRism masks to evacuees in the affected areas of the Bicol Region, Bulacan, Cagayan, Isabela, Pampanga, and Rizal provinces, as well as Marikina City.
UNIQLO opened its first store in the Philippines in Manila in June 2012, and currently operates 60 stores throughout the country. The typhoons have not caused any direct damage to UNIQLO stores.
UNIQLO hopes for the speedy recovery of the typhoon-hit regions and that the families affected can return to their normal lives as soon as possible.
